Poldark is television series starring Aidan Turner as Poldark. The series was first aired on BBC One in the UK and is broadcast by PBS in America. It is based on two original Poldark novels written by Winston Graham which was later adapted by Debbie Horsfield. However, this is not to be confused with an earlier television series that aired back in the late 1970s. The show is about Ross Poldark who has returned to the UK after the American War of Independence in the late 18th century. Apparently, he had to spend three years in the military to avoid charges of smuggling. Though his homecoming is cut short when his father is found to be dead, and his estate is in shambles. Not to mention that this old sweetheart has been engaged to his cousin. He later finds out that his mines have been taken over by the greedy George Warlggan and proceeds to wrestle control away from him.
