By the end of the eighties aired on portuguese television (and other countries as well) a tv show based on the story of Switzerland national hero William Tell, called Crossbow.

The other day I was surfing the web and accidentally stumbled upon a site dedicated to the series. Great stuff!!

As i recall it had a very dark atmosfere (both in clothes, houses and landscapes) portraying very well, what i believe, should be life in the middle ages: dirty and gloomy…. Unlike more recent tv shows where characters look and feel 20th century with fancy, shinning clothes and fashion hairstyle.
