Episode three of channel 4's flagship soap. originally broadcast in November 1982, this is a VHS rip of the living channel showing fron the 1990's and carries the living channel logo.
For those not familiar with Brookside, it is set in a Liverpool new build housing estae. The series ran from November 1982 until November 2003 when Channel 4 decided to axe it due to falling viewing figures. Created by Phil Redmond, the man behind BBC's succesful school drama Grange Hil and spin off Tuckers Luck, Channel 4's What Now and Hollyoaks, HTV's Going Out,and opther projects. Redmond opteed for a realistic approach to filming by purchasing several houses on an Liverpool housing estate to use for filming and production rather than use the traditional set based approach. Originally following the fortunes and misfortunesof the Grant Family, the Huntingtons and the Collins family as they adjust to life in their new homes.
The series covered many serious social issues of the day, but also had a great deal of humour. Buoyed by the excellent writing skills of the likes of Jimmy McGovern (Cracker) and Frank Cottrell Boyce (Springhill, 24 hr Party People)
