After all these years, one western drama stands above all others, Bonanza.

Set around 1860s Virginia City, Nevada, this acclaimed series chronicles the weekly adventures of the Cartwright family, headed by the three-timed widowed patriarch Ben Cartwright (Lorne Greene).

He has three sons each by a different wife; the eldest being the urbane architect Adam Cartwright (Pernell Roberts), who built the ranch house; the second, the warm and lovable giant Eric ‘Hoss’ Cartwright (Dan Blocker); and the youngest, the hot-headed and impetuous Joseph or ‘Little Joe’.

In season 6 Ben is held for ransom by outlaws holed up in an abandoned mine.

So saddle up and be ready to ride at 2pm on April 20th.
