I'd have thought people watching regularly would series link anyway.


That's what I do. Funnily enough it does mean on the days I'm watching live, I see the adverts during EastEnders on Drama, but not on the Corrie & Emmerdale repeats due to the clash and having to watch them on recordings.


I “series link” them too, and whizz through the ads and (usually) the opening and closing titles otherwise they would take even longer to watch! I had a stack of The Bills too but deleted them - I lost interest when they skipped ten years, and the series became less episodic and more serialised so you couldn’t dip in and out of it and still fully appreciate one episode as a self-contained drama.
Cut out the coupon in your TV Times!

Looks like Virgin Media have finally corrected the broadcast dates on classic Corrie and Emmerdale today. Also seems to be listing Emmerdale episodes as a "series" from today too, with today's episodes (5th & 10th September 1991) listed as Series 19 episodes 9 and 10. Going by that, the episode they're considering the start of series 19 seems to be the 6th August episode, how they've worked that out as the start of a "series", I don't know, though it seems the last episode before the final "summer break" was 6th August 1985, so maybe that's how they're counting the series start points (though I'd more have expected them to be counting it from when they returned, which was the 3rd September 1985).

That fits with my earlier post about new hairstyles etc.

I'm still a week or so behind, and I've just seen the episode with Henry Wilks' funeral, and they showed a few clips from old episodes, and interestingly they showed a clip from the first Emmerdale Farm episode, only it had clearly come from a VHS tape, and a very noisy and creased one at that. Weren't they able to make a transfer from a broadcast quality copy at the time?

Still making me wish ITV3 had shown at least SOME of the Emmerdale Farm era, even if they didn't want to start right back at 1972. At the very least they could have showed the last 18 months or so that Sky Soap never got round to.
