Publisher's Summary

This is the 2015 edition of the memoir of BBC/Masterpiece Theatre actor Robin Ellis, the original Captain Ross Poldark in the BBC classic television series. This expanded edition includes an all new chapter documenting Robin's return to television as part of the new series produced by Mammoth Screen, on behalf of the BBC and Masterpiece/PBS, with Aidan Turner as the new Poldark.
First broadcast in the 1970s, this saga of thwarted love, passion, and swashbuckling adventure, set against hard times in 18th-century Cornwall, became an international sensation, popular in over 40 countries around the world. The memoir also describes the behind-the-scenes story of the original BBC/Masterpiece Theater series, the ongoing effect of "Poldark perks" on Robin's life, and his transformation into a cookbook author.

Thanks Robin

I watched all the original Poldark when it was first shown on television. We were all a little in love with Ross played by Robin Ellis. I've watched the new series too and enjoyed it. I listened to this account through making shortbread biscuits, stuffed chicken breasts and a complicated chocolate pudding. Hearing Robin Ellis read his book was lovely, I am off to look for his cookbook now.
