Poldark was a hugely popular BBC miniseries, first broadcast in the 1970s.
Set against the stormy socio-political backdrop of 18th-century England, the romantic saga follows the fortunes of Ross Poldark (Robin Ellis) as he returns to Cornwall from the American War of Independence to find his fiancée married to his cousin and his father’s tin mines derelict. Ross ends up marrying his servant, the unlikely-looking Demelza, but his passion for Elizabeth simmers on for years. Life is hard, smuggling is rife and Ross finds himself taking the side of the underclass against the ruthless behaviour of his enemies, the greedy Warleggan clan.
