Yellow Rose, The
1 9 8 3 - 1 9 8 4 (USA)
22 x 60 minute episodes
The Yellow Rose was a sprawling saga of life, love and the pursuit of intrigue on a modern West Texas ranch.
The NBC series revolved around the efforts of the Champion family to keep their place going despite high costs, treacherous hired hands, mountain lions attacking their stallions, rabies, drug smugglers, oil rustlers - and worst of all, the efforts of their powerful enemy, Jeb Hollister (Chuck Connors), to wrest control of their 200,000-plus acres.
"That land was my birthright," he claimed. Many years ago, in fact, it had been his - until he lost it in a bet.
