- Program Description
Broadcast: June 4- Aug. 27, 1978 Series begins with Capt. Ross Poldark's return from the defeat of British forces in the Revolutionary War. On his return to his native Cornwall, Ross finds his father dead, leaving him the heir to a run-down estate and house, Nampara. His main sources of revenue, two copper mines, have been neglected and the house run by a drunken common law wife. His intended wife has become engaged to his cousin, Francis, because she thought Poldark perished in the war. His Uncle Charles had agreed to sell the mines to a smooth character named Warleggen. How the feisty Poldark handles these and other troubles is the focus of these two series.
