Welcome, welcome, Bron.  I have been to several places in Australia, but not Adelaide. One of my children lives in Perth and I shall be visiting later in the year.

Hope you enjoy our rantings, chunterings and expressions of joy.

When you make it to Cornwall, drop into Nampara and I will make you a dish of tea.

 Thankyou!!

Bit late to the party Bronny, but nonetheless, a really big warm welcome to you.  You'll really enjoy it here I feel sure; it's always great to chat about our favourite topic and to hear different points of view.  Lovely to have you on board and look forward to lots of interesting Poldark discussions.  Hope you manage to get to see the Cult of Poldark soon, I taped it on VHS last time it was on TV, but hopefully Char can get a DVD to you, which I'm sure you will really enjoy. biggrin


 Thankyou Namparagirl!

Be very much appreciated if you can, the thread starting at the very bottom and working upwards.

Sure will - busy working on a uni assignment for the next few days but will try to have a look after that....I know they did delete some bits when it went to VHS (friends had a copy but I didn't bother buying)....but the DVD ones appear to be quite complete.

Welcome Bronny, always delighted to see another poldark fan. We have quite a few discussions going about the different characters in poldark and our thoughts on some of the storylines so do join in, always good tohear another view point.

I recorded cult of poldark onto my hard drive and could burn it to dvd but im not sure if it would be compatible with australian dvd players ?? or is that only prerecorded dvds. i have uploaded some of cult of poldark to youtube but not all of it. 

will look forward to seeing you on the forum.

Hi Bronny

Welcome aboard....I too have never seen the Cult of Poldark :(  I must have been seeing to my Hollyhocks at the time it was shown........I took my time in viewing the ITV Stranger from the Sea, but yes, you must watch it due to your love of the story.....treat yourself to one off e-bay, they are often on there for 99p.  However, Robin and Angharad are sorely missed in this production :(

Love Bella x

...and I live near Port Adelaide too - and it appears from your private message that we are acquainted!

What a funny old world...

Hi Bronny,

I'm also writing from South Aust! I think they call us Crow Eaters??? if it applies to the football, I hope its right! ( for out of towners, Port & Crows are kinda rivals in this state, & I live nr the Port)

Is it not grand to see that the legacy of W Graham is thriving all around the world.

 Look forward to sharing the forum with you

All the Best,

Smollett

Hi All,

My first time here - I'm Bronwyn (but most people call me Bron or Bronny) in Adelaide, South Australia. Poldark has always been my favourite book series and tv series. It was first aired here back in 1979 when I was quite young and I fell in love with it immediately and starting reading the books soon after. I was lucky enough to have a clunky old VCR even back in those early days and recorded all the episodes which I still have. I've recently bought the dvd box set and am rewatching ....they are still as wonderful as ever....although some of the effects are a bit dated now!

Poldark started a long love affair with Cornwall for me and I have been twice - doing my own 'Poldark Trail' was great fun. I loved Robin's book about the making of the series and have longed to see a documentary about it too.

Which brings me to a question - has anyone managed yet to find a copy of 'Cult of Poldark'? I know there is a thread on this forum about it - it doesn't sound hopeful. I've looked at the excerpts on YouTube and it's driving me mad to see the rest of it! There is one last place I am trying online today - but I'm not optimistic - any information would be appreciated....

It's lovely reading updates about all the actors are up to these days....and sad too. I was sorry to read of the tragic death of Angharad's son Linford - if I'm not wrong, he played Ginny's baby Benjy in Poldark.

Looking forward to being involved here and to help keep the Poldark spirit alive. BTW - I've never seen the ITV Poldark series - I'm not sure if I want to...what do you think?

Regards to all

Bronny
