The memorable music and songs for Maid Marian and Her Merry Men series were composed by Nick Russell-Pavier and David Chilton.—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:06, 5 November 2003 (UTC)

Great! I'll put this in the article. By the way, you are allowed to put it in yourself. Anyone can add information to Wikipedia. Talk to me if you want to know more. - user:zanimum—Preceding undated comment added 14:40, 5 November 2003 (UTC).

Like many British children's programmes, there is a lot of social commentary snuck in, which would be unlikely to have been allowed on an adult show, due to the Beeb's neutrality on political issues. I'm sorry but thats just plain wrong, political neutrality applies to news and current affairs not comedy or drama. Saul Taylor 19:22, 29 Jan 2004 (UTC)

Actually no, there IS a lot of social commentary on the show.—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:11, 19 December 2004 (UTC)
I don't think Saul was saying that there wasn't; what he was saying was that the Beeb's political neutrality has nothing to do with it. --Paul A 04:09, 21 Dec 2004 (UTC)
I just watched Tony Robnson's stand up act Cunning Night Out and from what he says is it wasn't a Children's program, even though alot of kids watched it. From what he says in it the entire show wasn't targeted at kids. -- Hagis —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:33, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

Doesn't that link go to the wrong David Lloyd?—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:04, 3 August 2005 (UTC)

no, it's the right David Lloyd.—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:34, 4 December 2005 (UTC)


I started a separate section to list the video and DVD releases, with dates and references to press releases, since these are the main Maid Marian-related happenings at the moment, and I;m sure it's better to back up the dates with sources.

I wanted to provide sources for the dates in a "references" section, in a similar style to the Top Gear page, but there was already a references section with a list of books in: this has been on the page for ages, but surely these aren't references in an encyclopedic sense? I don't own any of the books but I doubt the books are all a source for this page. I've renamed that section "Comic books", for now, and I reckon it should probably have a bit more information about the books, than just a list of ISBNs. Jimbow25 16:12, 5 March 2006 (UTC)


I reverted the edits by the piece about the upcoming DVDs, because I can't see how these made anything any clearer. Use of "program" instead of "programme", and "Volume 1" instead of "Series 1" is not consistent with the rest of the article. What was written (and then hastily removed) on the edits in between by this person may well be worth mentioning somewhere in the article. Jimbow25 18:48, 12 March 2006 (UTC)

Young Telegraph[edit]

Anyone want to create a page for the Daily Telegraph's children's/young adult section...? I'll probably get around to it sooner or later if not. ntnon (talk) 03:50, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

Ratings irrelevant?[edit]

Not sure I see point of having a section on Ratings (CBBC Channel) with data relating to a minor channel repeat showing rather than episodes' respective debuts, a decade or more after the 'main event'.

Further, the data presented are both incomplete and without context (no indication is given of which episodes are being referenced, and why only those listed - 4 episodes is less than one series - not to mention lack of calendrical linearity, with 9 April placed after 11 April). 2 B Promoted (talk) 10:43, 21 October 2013 (UTC)
