Penmarric - 30th Anniversary Edition - four-DVDs
An epic and enthralling BBC drama, based on the bestselling novel by Susan Howatch.
Set on the stormy coasts of Cornwall, Mark Castallack is the Master of Penmarric, a lost soul who finds love in the arms of Janna, an older woman and daughter of a local fisherman. The impact of their marriage on the family and community - and the dark secrets that surround it - sets off a chain of events that threatens all who cross the threshold of the grand house. The course is set towards a tragedy that will echo across time pitting husband against wife, father against son and brother against brother.
Gloriously filmed on the Cornish coast with great attention to historic detail in setting and costume, Penmarric reflects television drama at a height not often attempted and rarely achieved.
