Ross Poldark is the first novel in Winston Graham's hugely popular Poldark series, which has become a television phenomenon starring Aidan Turner. Tired from a grim war in America, Ross Poldark returns to his land and his family. But the joyful homecoming he has anticipated turns sour, for his father is dead, his estate is derelict and the girl he loves is engaged to his cousin. But his sympathy for the destitute miners and farmers of the district leads him to rescue a half-starved urchin girl from a fairground brawl and take her home - an act which alters the whole course of his life . . . Ross Poldark is followed by Demelza, the second novel in this evocative series set in 18th century Cornwall.

This volume presents the first ever comprehensive anthology of dramatic television serials. For the purposes of this book a serial is defined as a drama broadcast in a number of episodes telling one connected story. The rise and development of the serial into its current and well-loved form has not been chronicled in this way before. Up till now it has been extremely difficult to study the British serial in any coherent way; many varied and scattered sources would have had to be consulted.This book is arranged by decade with each serial listed chronologically by its first episode. Each entry gives details of title, date and timing, which TV company produced it, how many episodes, of what type (eg science fiction, thriller), the place and era in which it is set, who produced, directed and wrote the work, if appropriate the book title and author on which the serial was based, the cast, its availability on video and, lastly, a synopsis of the plot and any interesting or special points about it.Detailed indexing allows easy access to information previously difficult to connect and compile. Readers will be able to search by title, by type and era, by producer, director and writer, and by cast and main character.
