BROOKSIDE

C4/Mersey / x30m-e / 1982 – 2003 (21 years)

Creator/Executive Producer: Phil Redmond

Primetime soap that started on Channel 4 the same day that channel itself started. Brookside (simply focusing on the lives of a group of people living in Brookside Close in a suburb of Liverpool) was and remains gritty with bad language and real life well to the fore. The early years of the show were dominated by the Grant family, husband Bobby (who seemed to spend years on Strike), his wife Sheila and their kids Barry, Damon and Karen.
The show has always been issue led and some of its most notable storylines have included the notorious body under the patio character of Trevor Jordache, murdered by the daughter he had been abusing, this was Beth Jordache (played by Anna Friel) who seemed to be the main focus of the show in the mid nineties and also performed the first lesbian kiss on a UK soap.
Over the years characters in Brookside have had to suffer sieges, religious cults, explosions, murder, i fact you name and it seems to have happened to someone in Brookside Close.
The show was originally to have been called Meadowcroft and there have been two short spin offs called Damon and Debbie and South. Occasional video releases have also been released in recent years. Brookside had its final prime time episode on 21 November 2002. Due to falling ratings the show moved to Saturday afternoon’s only in omnibus form (previously the omnibus edition was an additional broadcast). This continued until C4’s existing commitment to broadcast the show ceases. In its final few months the show was relegated to a late-night slot and had its final-ever episode on 4 November 2003 for which Paul Usher and Claire Sweeney returned. The winding-up plot involved a gradual mass exodus of residents after the houses were bought up by a nearby incineration plant. A special DVD was released following this called ‘Brookside: Unfinished Business’ to tie up some further loose-ends. Creator Phil Redmond has said he may offer the show to another broadcaster.
