Drover’s Gold (BBC-1 1997, David Calder, Geraldine James)

Published

on

Romance, adventure and spectacular scenery dominate the action-filled story of Drover’s Gold as a band of 19th century cowboys driving a herd of cattle from rural Wales to London. It is summer 1843, and the downtrodden tenant farmers of a Welsh valley, led by the young Aaron Jones, rise up against their manipulative landlord by guiding their cattle to London to secure the best market price.

As the intrepid adventurers make their way along their hazardous trail, they are hampered at every turn by agents of landlord Sir Huw Watkins. But in the end it is Sir Huw’s own daughter who scuppers his plans, motivated by a hard-headed sense of justice – and a growing attachment to lowly-born Aaron.
