Bonanza is set around the 1860s, and centres on the wealthy Cartwright family who live in the area of Virginia City, Nevada, bordering Lake Tahoe.

The show chronicles the weekly adventures of the Cartwright family headed by the thrice-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 is the warm and lovable giant Eric "Hoss" Cartwright (Dan Blocker), and the youngest is the hot-headed and impetuous Joseph or "Little Joe".

In Season 8, an aging wrangler turns against the Cartwrights after Ben suggests that he retire.

Saddle up for Bonanza, weekdays at 1pm.
