Can Evan do a Robin Hood accent?


Could Evan Davis ride with Robin Hood?

Russell Crowe has stepped out of Australia and into Sherwood Forrest for the latest incarnation of Robin Hood. But how hard was it to wrap his antipodean vocal chords around the all-important woodland accent?

To see if anyone can be Robin Hood, Evan Davis asked accents coach Andrew Jack to teach him the Nottinghamshire twang.

Think you can do better? If you've got the technology, upload your Robin Hood accent to Audioboo and tag it with R4Today and RobinHood. Here's the quote:

"The laws of this land enslave people to its king. A king who demands loyalty but offers nothing in return."

If you're not an aspiring woodland freedom fighter, then let us know what you think the best and worst on-screen accents are on email , Twitter or Facebook .
