Synopsis:
It is 30 years since the BBC first broadcast this epic and enthralling drama, based on the bestselling novel by Susan Howatch. Powerful and compelling, 'Penmarric' is a sweeping, historic tale of unsuppressed passion and rampant ambition, desire and destruction, spanning three generations from Victorian England to the Second World War. 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.
