This is the memoir of BBC/Masterpiece Theatre actor Robin Ellis, who offers his own behind-the-scenes account of making Poldark--one of the most successful British classic television series of all time. Based on the novels of Winston Graham, Poldark is a swashbuckling saga of passion, adventure and heartbreak, set against the dramatic backdrop of eighteenth-century Cornwall. Hugely popular in both the US and UK when it first aired in the 1970s, the series remains a favorite on DVD, entertaining and enchanting new generations of viewers in 35 countries throughout the world. This updated edition of Making Poldark reveals the story behind the proposed-but-never-filmed third series, along with a look at Robin's later work--including his second career as cookbook author. It also includes previously unpublished photographs from Winston Graham's personal Poldark album and from Robin's own private collection.
