The Biter Bit?


Tape thieves put Robin Hood series in jeopardy

A BBC drama series is in jeopardy after vital tapes were stolen in Budapest. Robin Hood, an £8 million series which was due to be broadcast on Saturday nights from October, could be pushed back or even shelved, sources fear.
The BBC said yesterday that the theft of the tapes and other equipment had caused "inconvenience and have resulted in a delay in finalising some of the episodes".
The corporation would not comment on rumours that eastern European gangsters were demanding a £1 million ransom for the return of the tapes, or on reports that there was no back-up recording.
