Andrew Graham is the son of Poldark series author Winston Graham. He was a consultant on the new Mammoth Screen adaptation of the story on behalf of the Poldark Estate. The series is currently airing Sunday nights on Masterpiece on PBS in conjunction with WGBH.  The story of British army officer Ross Poldark was a huge international hit in 1975, when the BBC made it into a TV series. A new generation of fans is now enthralled by Poldark galloping along the cliffs of Cornwall, pining for lost love, finding new love with his fiery young maid Demelza and fighting to keep his copper mine open for the sake of his own inheritance and the workers who depend on him. The Mammoth Screen remake of Poldark is airing Sunday evenings on PBS’s Masterpiece in conjunction with WGBH here in the US. I should disclose that I am one of those fully-enthralled new fans.
