1. We are the reason Ross Poldark is on British TV screens.
First of all, I would just like to say “you are welcome” to the people of Britain. If it weren’t for us Cornish and our tumultuous history and love of mead and mines, you wouldn’t have had a naked Ross Poldark on your TV every Sunday night for eight weeks. It’s not just him, but the scenery in which Poldark was filmed is untouched with no CGI or enhancement needed. Cornwall really is that beautiful. Unfortunately though, real Cornish men drink too much local cider to be that attractive.
