POLDARK is the beloved BBC mini series set against the stormy sociopolitical backdrop of 18th-century England. The year is 1780, and Captain Ross Poldark has just returned to Cornwall from his battles in the American War. He hopes to settle down with his inheritance and his beloved Elizabeth, but false reports of his death preceded his arrival, resulting in heartbreaking circumstances. In addition, Poldark must also contend with his fetching new housekeeper and the family copper mines which threaten to fall into the hands of his greatest archenemy. This volume contains all of the remaining episodes from the series' first season.

The second eight episodes of series one in this Cornish saga, first screened in the 1970's. Ross fights to make the defunct copper mine a success, only to be arrested and charged with inciting the villagers to loot a recent shipwreck. Demelza suspects George Warleggan of being involved. Facing trial, Ross finds that villagers are being paid to testify against him - possibly also the work of the wicked Warleggan. Ross is in very real financial trouble and there's no new supply of copper forthcoming from the mine. He becomes cold towards a despairing Demelza, and finds himself drawn to Elizabeth once more. Elizabeth, meanwhile, receives a marriage proposal from another, much to Ross's chagrin.
