As an educational charity, part of the RTS focus is on providing information for young entrants into the television and media industry. Our Behind the Scenes series explores the production process of some of Britain's most popular programmes. From current affairs to comedy, panel shows and soaps, these films will offer a rare glimpse backstage of each production, highlighting all the different roles and giving a sense of what they involve.
In this episode, we go behind the scenes of Emmerdale. As the UK's second oldest television soap opera, attracting an average of 5–7 million viewers per episode, those at Emmerdale know a thing or two about telling a good story. In this film we meet the writers, producers, designers and directors that make the show a success, asking them how they got to where they are and how you might be able to follow in their footsteps.
