1950's tv teaching law?

Of the 1950's tv show The Adventures of Robin Hood [starring Richard Greene], wikipedia writes:

[I]n "A Year and A Day", a refugee peasant explains that, under English law, a peasant who escapes serfdom and lives in a city for "a year and a day" is a free man, given the man lives openly, not in hiding. When Robin Hood helps the peasant move about the city, the Sheriff invokes "the law of hue and cry", explaining that any man within hearing must drop his chores and help apprehend the felon.

A junior version of Law & Order? Adverse possession applied to humans?

**Separately, an episode of Law & Order: SVU, which included the following character-spoken text:

"Limbaugh, Beck, O'Reilly, all of 'em, they are like a cancer spreading ignorance and hate...They've convinced folks that immigrants are the problem, not corporations that fail to pay a living wage or a broken health care system..."

has stirred up Bill O'Reilly.

A relevant videoclip can be viewed at O'Reilly slams 'Law & Order,' calls Wolf 'despicable' .
