By the way, have you heard we will have more episodes for Poldark series 2? That's great news, isn't it? The Radio Times Festival, couldn't avoid adding a Poldark event to the list, of course, after the huge success of BBC costume drama starring Aidan Turner. The Making of Poldark is one of the most important in their schedule in fact. The lucky participants will get the inside story of the BBC series from executive producers Karen Thrussell, Damien Timmer and Debbie Horsfield, the writer responsible for turning Winston Graham’s novels into sparkling scripts. Leading members of the cast will also attend, but their names are still to be announced. Joining them will be Andrew Graham, who will be on hand to talk about his father’s writing, including the book Poldark’s Cornwall, which is about the other star of the show — the beautiful county of Cornwall itself.
