"POLDARK" SERIES ONE (1975): EPISODES FIVE TO EIGHT

Last winter, I began watching the BBC's 1975-77 adaptation of Winston Graham's literary series about the life of a British Army officer and American Revolutionary War veteran, following his return to his घर in Cornwall. The first four episodes proved to be adaptation of the first novel in Graham's series, 1945's "Ross Poldark: A Novel of Cornwall, 1783-1787". Episodes Five to Eight focused on the series' सेकंड novel, 1946's "Demelza: A Novel of Cornwall, 1788-1790".

"CALIFORNIA" (1947) Review

I am a history nut. And one of my प्रिय historical periods that I प्यार to study is the Antebellum Era of the United States. One of my प्रिय topics from this period is the California सोना Rush.

Simply titled "GEORGE WASHINGTON", this three-part miniseries was based upon two biographies written द्वारा James Thomas Flexner - 1965's "George Washington, the Forge of Experience, 1732–1775" and 1968's "George Washington in the American Revolution, 1775–1783".

"THE THREE MUSKETEERS" (1948) Review

There are times when I find myself amazed at the longevity of Alexandre Dumas' 1844 novel, "The Three Musketeers". The novel has been in circulation for nearly 170 years. Hollywood and other film industries have been adapting the novel for the फिल्में या टेलीविज़न for nearly a century. One adaptation I recently viewed was the Hollywood movie produced and released द्वारा MGM Studios in 1948.
