30 years of Emmerdale - Wednesday 16 October 2002 at 8:30pm
As the nation's favourite raunchy rural soap celebrates 30 glorious years on our screens this October, ITV1 marks the special occasion with an hour long documentary, 30 Years of Emmerdale.
The show recalls the sizzling storylines that have kept the soap's 10 million strong audience gripped over a mammoth 3,288 episodes, and introduces the characters past and present who have endeared us to the five-night-a-week soap.
30 Years of Emmerdale reminds viewers that in the early days, if they weren't sitting around Annie's table eating breakfast, they were spending their days with hands up cows, shearing sheep or plucking geese. Fond memories, but they soon made way for sex, intrigue and action, with blockbusting storylines that have had audiences of up to 16 million tuning in.
30 Years of Emmerdale goes behind the scenes to meet the cast and creators who've made Emmerdale the hottest soap on the box.
