GRANGE HILL
 
Swimming pool disasters. Drugs, and just say ‘no’. Flying sausages. School like you’d never seen it before.
 
BROOKSIDE
 
Lesbian kisses. Bodies under patios. Exploding shops. Suburban life like you’d never seen it before.
 
HOLLYOAKS
 
Bad boys on bikes. Loveable geeks. Leggy blondes. Students like you’d never seen them before.
 
PHIL REDMOND
 
Three classic TV programmes. One TV genius. This is the behind-the-scenes story of how a working-class lad from the Liverpool suburbs went from living on a housing estate to buying one, and from comprehensive school dinners to lunch with the Queen. Along the way he learned a lot of lessons, broke all the rules, and changed television for ever.
