Relive the thrilling first season of the swashbuckling romantic series with hints of what's to come for the dashing Captain Ross Poldark. Featuring cast and creator interviews, behind-the-scenes footage and the spectacular Cornish coastline.

Poldark is based on a beloved series of novels by Winston Graham. The first, Ross Poldark, was published in 1945; the last, Bella Poldark, appeared in 2002, the year before Graham’s death. All twelve are subtitled A Novel of Cornwall and trace the fortunes of a landed, mine-owning family in windswept Cornwall two centuries ago.
