Emmerdale Farm was first broadcast on 16 October 1972. It is produced by ITV Yorkshire and has been filmed at their Leeds studios since its inception. The programme, which is currently the UK’s second oldest television soap opera, has been transmitted in every ITV region throughout its existence.
The series was originally transmitted during daytime afternoons until 1978, when it was moved to an early evening timeslot in most regions (London and Anglia followed in the mid-1980s).
Until December 1988, Emmerdale took seasonal breaks, but since then it has been broadcast year-round.
Emmerdale episodes air on the ITV network once every weekday evening at 19:00, with an additional second Thursday episode airing at 20:00. The programme began broadcasting in high definition from 10 October 2011.
Emmerdale is the UK’s second longest running television soap opera (after Coronation Street), and attracts on average 5-8 million viewers per episode.
