Time to say ‘Dyw genes’ to Poldark

I don’t know about you, but here at EuroTalk we’ve been very much enjoying the BBC’s latest Sunday night drama, Poldark. Set in the late 18th century, and based on the books by Winston Graham, it’s the story of Ross Poldark (Aidan Turner), who returns from the American War of Independence to find his father dead and the woman he loves engaged to his cousin. Poldark is an epic love story, with a suitably dashing hero, but it’s also a historical drama about the business and politics of the mining industry in south west England. I can’t speak for its accuracy, but it’s definitely very enjoyable…

Poldark is set on the beautiful coast of Cornwall, and with the series finale airing this weekend, we thought it was only right that we say an appropriate farewell. So whether you’ve always fancied learning a little Cornish, or, like us, you’re a fan of the lovely Ross, here’s your chance to hear some of this wonderful language.

And if you need a reason to visit Cornwall, well, we’ve got ten of them! Read Nat’s post – 10 Reasons to Visit Cornwall – here.

Plus if you haven’t had a chance to enjoy Poldark and you’re wondering what all the fuss is about, check out the trailer!
