This rousing, made-for-TV miniseries is a good retelling of Sir Walter Scott's tale of the young knight Ivanhoe (Steven Waddington) who battles the evil Prince John (Ralph Brown) and his templar cohorts in 12th-century England. After returning from the Crusades, a disguised Ivanhoe finds himself in the middle of Prince John's efforts to replace Richard (Rory Edwards) as king of England. Ivanhoe enters a tournament to win back the love of Rowena (Victoria Smurfit). He wins the tournament but is injured, and is nursed back to health by Rebecca (Susan Lynch) with whom he falls in love. More problems lie ahead when Rebecca is condemned as a witch and is sentenced to be burned at the stake. Ivanhoe rescues Rebecca, but will he be able to restore Richard to the throne?
