Item Description
Emmerdale, known as Emmerdale Farm until 1989, is a popular and critically acclaimed 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 EastEnders.

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.
