Loved by millions, soap operas have become a regular part of people’s lives and now NetworkDVD celebrate the genre with the first release of Soap Box, a collection of classic ITV sagas. The trailer includes clips from Emmerdale, Crossroads, Coronation Street and The Bill.
“A staple part of British television culture over the last fifty years, our devoted interest in the dramatic, funny and sometimes tragic situations of characters we’ve come to know and love always keeps us coming back for more.” Network DVD say.
Other serials on the Soap Box DVD include 1970s medical saga General Hospital (ATV), period soap The Cedar Tree (ATV) and 1960s East End market street drama Honey Lane (ATV). There’s also the short-lived Albion Market (Granada), the ‘original Emmerdale‘ with Weavers Green (Anglia TV), Families (Granada/Central), Marked Personal (Thames TV) and London Bridge (Carlton).
