Before the Movie, Part 3

Today's post is about a television series rather than a "major motion picture" release. On Sunday, September 25, season two of Poldark, a BBC production, will begin on PBS. We have season one on DVD [DVD POL] if you'd like to watch it again, or start from the beginning so that you can begin the second season with a familiarity of the story and characters.

Some of our older folks (that includes me) may remember Poldark from Masterpiece Theatre in the 1970s, when it was first shown on PBS. The first filmed version Poldark was one of the series that basically put PBS into play as a major television influence. The old series is on order and when it comes in, it might be interesting to watch the two versions one after another to compare.

Poldark is a literature-based series from the books by Graham Winston all F WIN. We have book one, Ross Poldark: A Novel of Cornwall, 1783-1787, book two, Demelza, and book three, Jeremy Poldark.
