EyeSpy: This weekend fans of archive television will be gathering in the Midlands to celebrate recent discoveries, including some long lost moments from ATV soap opera Crossroads.
Crossroads was at its peak in the mid-1970s with up to 18 million viewers watching nightly.
As ATV Today reported earlier, Crossroads is to be one of the programmes featured at a archive screening event this coming weekend. And in this EyeSpy we’ve got a look at a segment of a recently rediscovered partial episode from 1975 when the show was at its most popular with ITV audiences.
Set in the fictitious King’s Oak Crossroads Motel near Birmingham, and focusing on the relationships between the staff, the programme ran for 24 years from 1964, finally closing its doors in 1988 after 4,510 episodes. The series was revived in 2001, by Carlton Television in Nottingham, but the new version only lasted two years.
