Emmerdale, known as Emmerdale Farm until 1989, is a popular and
British soap opera that has aired on
ITV since 1972. It is set in the
fictional village of Emmerdale (known as Beckindale until 1994) in
West Yorkshire, England.
Emmerdale is the third most popular soap opera on
British television, behind
Coronation Street and
The series first aired on 16 October 1972. It was originally
conceived and broadcast as a daytime program in an afternoon slot,
becoming an early evening program in 1978 in most ITV regions - but
excluding London and Anglia, both of which followed in the
mid-1980s. Until the mid-1980s, Emmerdale took seasonal breaks and
was not an all year round soap. The series was first broadcast over
the Christmas holiday period in 1988.
Initially the show focused on the farm, and the Sugden family
who lived on and ran it. As time went on, the show's focus moved to
the nearby village of Beckindale. To reflect this change, the
show's title was changed in November 1989 to Emmerdale.
In the story the name of the village was changed from Beckindale
to Emmerdale in 1994, after the plane crash.
Coinciding with the show's 1989 title change was the
introduction of the Tate family. The Tates emerged as the soap's
leading family in the 1990s, overshadowing the Sugdens. The Tate
family has since been supplanted, with the
Dingle family taking centre stage
beginning in the mid-1990s, and the
King family from mid to late 2000s. By
the end of the 2000s, several new families were created, such as
the Wyldes and the Bartons.
