The Show

Poldark is a British-American drama television series that was first broadcast on BBC One on 8 March 2015. The first eight-part series (aired in seven parts in the USA) was based on the first two Poldark novels by Winston Graham, adapted by Debbie Horsfield and directed by Edward Bazalgette and Will McGregor. An earlier television series of the same name was based on Graham's first four Poldark novels, broadcast by BBC One between 1975 and 1977.

On 8 April 2015, the BBC announced that a second series had been commissioned which premiered on 4 September 2016. The BBC announced on 6 July 2016, before series 2 had begun, that a third series had been commissioned.

In the late 18th century, Ross Poldark returns from the American War of Independence to his Cornish copper mines after spending three years in the army to avoid charges of smuggling. When he gets home, he finds his father dead, his estate in ruins, and his old sweetheart Elizabeth engaged to his cousin Francis. He rescues a young woman, Demelza, from a beating, and takes her on as a kitchen maid while trying to help the people of the village and attempting to gain control of the mines sought after by his rival, the greedy and arrogant George Warleggan.
