About this show

From the producers of Downton Abbey and writer Bill Gallagher comes Jamestown. This is the epic story of the first British settlers laying down the foundations for a New World and the start of the American dream. Jamestown is the tale of these pioneers as they establish a community whilst battling against the magnificent but inhospitable wilderness. 1619, Virginia. On what feels like the edge of the world sits the English colony of Jamestown. The settlement barely survived its first decade but is now on the brink of a new era with the arrival of Governor Sir George Yeardley. With him is a Charter granting land to the earliest male settlers in reward for their loyalty. He has also brought with him 90 women to 'make wives’. These women have been shipped over to encourage settlers to marry and ensure that the colony flourishes. Leaving behind a troubled past or searching for a better life, they join a settlement searching for its future. As this fledgling society evolves, we explore all that is good and ill about mankind, all set against the wild and beautiful backdrop of unspoilt Virginia.

This series is fantastic. Harsh at times but that was the era. Once you get over treatment of slaves the storyline was excellent and makes you feel like its exactly as life would have been. Love it.
