I watched this back in 78 (aged 12) before reading the novels. The adaptation is solid, but generally uninspiring with 'comedy yokels' playing the Devonians. Glyn Houston was by far the most effective member of the cast imo. It's worth watching as an example of the kind of product the BBC was turning out at the time... no doubt they were looking for another Poldark. However, if you really want a fine adaptation of RF Delderfield then 'To Serve Them All My Days' from 1981 is far better.
