Cornwall’s rugged cliffs, restless, ever-changing seas, secluded coves and windswept moors provide the perfect back drop for Winston Graham’s saga of passion, rivalry and intrigue, and play a starring role in the BBC’s adaptation of his epic tale.
Poldark Country visits the places that inspired the writer, from Perranporth beach to the moorland villages of Demelza and Warleggan. The locations used by the BBC to recreate many of the most dramatic scenes, such as Church Cove at Gunwalloe, and Porthgwarra on the Lizard Peninsular. It also takes a fascinating look back at life in Poldark’s time with real stories of tin mining, wrecking and smuggling.
This is the perfect companion to the Poldark books and the BBC’s landmark series. It is narrated by Roger Vernon. The running time is 40 minutes.
