  • Emmerdale (known as Emmerdale Farm until 1989) is a British soap opera set in Emmerdale (known as Beckindale until 1994), a fictional village in the Yorkshire Dales. Created by Kevin Laffan, Emmerdale Farm was first broadcast on 16 October 1972. Produced by ITV Yorkshire. Interior scenes have been filmed at their Leeds studio since its inception. Exterior scenes were previously filmed in Esholt, a real village, but are now shot at a purpose built set on the Harewood estate. The programme is broadcast in every ITV region. The series originally aired during the afternoon until 1978, when it was moved to an early-evening prime time slot in most regions; London and Anglia followed during the mid-1980s. Until December 1988, Emmerdale took seasonal breaks; since then, it has been broadcast year-round. Episodes air on ITV weekday evenings at 19:00, with a second episode on Thursdays at 20:00. The programme began broadcasting in high definition on 10 October 2011. Emmerdale is the United Kingdom's second-longest-running television soap opera (after ITV's Coronation Street), and attracts an average of five to seven million viewers per episode. Since 21 January 2019, ten sequential classic episodes of the series from the inception of Emmerdale from 1989 onwards have been broadcast weekly on ITV3. In October 2012, the 40th anniversary of the soap was celebrated with a live episode. In March 2019, an episode featuring an exclusively female cast and crew was aired, in support of International Women's Day. (en)
