The Social Realist Roots of UK Soaps

1 comment:

  1. Very interesting read, but what about other "Soaps"?
    They range from "Eastenders" to trouble in the dales with "Emmerdale". Roxy and Ronnie Mitchell were supposed to be brought in as a female version of the Kray brothers, but neither of them have had a very good existence.
    Most of the movies shown, I've not watched, but "A Kestrel for a Knave" is one that sticks in my mind as we read it at school.
    I wonder if real people really live like that.
