I'll tell you a little story.  Suffice it to say, though, that I couldn't live without it!

I had taped the series myself when it was broadcast in the mid-80's.  However, one night in the early 90's my one homemade tape broke.  OMG!cry  I immediately ran out to a mall ( I didn't have my kids yet) and just my luck the VHS Tapes of Series 1 had just come out!  My ex husband was going to kill me!  Anyhow, the tapes were not as good as my homemade tapes because there were reworks here and there and cut scenes which ticked me off to no end.  I must say, though, I was not disappointed by the DVD, so far.  The whole series is in tact as I remember it or recorded it on my homemade tapes.

Welcome!

Ross Poldark, Char Nanfan, RDP5 and namparagirl:  Thank you and good to meet you.  And thanks for the warnings--so far I'm being very disciplined and staying out of spoiler areas!  

RDP5, you are lucky to at least have the VHS version of the series--October seems far away...

Welcome Ms Demelza, lovely to have you here!  Oh you lucky lady to have such treat in store with all the books yet to discover.  Ross Poldark has been my hero since I watched the original BBC TV series in the '70's and I've been reading the books ever since, never tire of them and love nothing more than escaping into a Poldark world whenever I can.  Looking forward to chatting with you, but as Char said, be careful not to spoil your enjoyment by reading posts which might give the storyline away.  Enjoy Demelza, you won't be disappointed!

HI Ms. Demelza!

Welcome to the POldark world! I am 47 years old and I discovered Poldark when I was 12. I have read all the books several times. I've had my episodes on VHS for the longest time and was so happy when it came out on DVD in the US. I felt the same way you do now. Oh heck I still have the same feeling!

Welcome you're going to love it here!

RDP5

Welcome to the forum Ms Demelza, you are in for a wonderful treat if you still have the rest of the books to read, im quite envious! THey have been my favourite books for 36 years and i never ever tire of reading them. Once you have read them, do join in our discussions, but be careful where you go until then as you may discover spoilers in some areas (we try very hard to keep things in the right place so as not to spoil the stroy for newbies) . Each thread should be highlighted if it does contain discussionof storylines.
Look forward to chatting!

Thanks for the warm welcome, Bella.  I've browsed around the forum and this seems like a lovely group.  It will be nice to experience the remaining books in good company!

Hello All,

Thank you for this forum!

I was initiated into the world of Poldark only this month--until then I'd never heard of it, despite having been an anglophile and BBC fan for most of my 46 years.  An acquaintance suggested the BBC series, and Robin Ellis hadn't uttered more than three lines before I was completely hooked.   I devoured Series 1, then read Ross Poldark (couldn't put it down--Graham is such a beautiful writer).   Now I'm impatiently waiting for my copy of Demelza to arrive, along with the Series 2 DVD, which won't be released in the US until October (argh!).

Looking forward to all the rest of the books, and repeated viewings of the films.
