From 1971 to 1980, millions followed the drama and spectacle of this lavishly-filmed television series following, the trials and triumphs, loves and betrayals, adventures and disasters of James (Peter Gilmore), his family and others in the Onedin Line fleet and boardroom.
Set in England in the 1860s when British naval strength was the envy of Europe, this saga charts the fortunes of an ambitious clever and determined ship owner whose private life is more stormy than the seas he sails.
It is six months since the death of his wife Anne, and James is still mourning her loss. Gradually he considers a second marriage and finds himself having to choose between two women: the adoring eighteen year-old Leonora Biddulph, daughter of a wealthy coal merchant and Caroline Maudslay, in her late twenties, a sophisticated wealthy widow whom he rescues from a dugout canoe on the Amazon river.
There are many new opportunities for James Onedin and his shipping line. The newly built Brazilian State Railway opens up a promising source of trade with constant demand for coal and iron. James is determined to win the contract but Frazer also has plans involving the use of Fogarty and a steamship. Later, Fogarty gets the better over James when he is successful in smuggling rubber seeds, ‘black gold’ out of Brazil for the development of plantations in India. Working the Onedin ships hard for every dollar, James journeys to the Baltic, East Africa, America and north-east Canada.
Follow the exciting tale of ruthless men, tempestuous women and violent seas in this three disc DVD boxset complete with all thirteen episodes from series three.
