Ivanhoe was a 1997 television mini-series based on the novel Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott. It was a produced by the BBC and A&E Network and consisted of six 50 minute episodes.

A TV adaptation of Sir Walter Scott’s novel set in 1192 AD about a disinherited knight who is accused of treachery in the Crusades. He returns anonymously to his home in England, to clear his name and win his lady love. Also King Richard has been a prisoner in an Austrian dungeon but is now returning to an England ruled by Prince John and the Normans. This series claims to aim at realism, mainly through a depiction of a very rough and poverty stricken time, in contrast to earlier, according to producers, "sanitized" versions. People wear layers of often old, sometimes ragged clothing to keep the cold out, are sometimes dirty, and have long shaggy hair and beards.
