'Poldark' to Air on Australia's ABC1 in 2015

Australian television network ABC1 will show the new BBC series of Poldark in 2015.

ABC has set out it's programmes for the coming year in the document 'It's All Good'  and Poldark is listed under 'Acquired Content' on page 32.  The list is in alphabetical order so gives no clue as to when it will air.

Whilst we were reliably informed that the drama would be shown in Australia next year, this is the first news we have seen in print, so it's great to have it confirmed.

Poldark is a period drama set in eighteenth century Cornwall. It stars Aidan Turner as Ross Poldark and Eleanor Tomlinson as Demelza. Poldark  will probably air in the UK on BBC1 in March 2015. It will also be shown on PBS Masterpiece Theatre in the US.
