TV 039: Emmerdale Farm - Tony Hatch

Emmerdale Farm started life as daytime Yorkshire TV drama in 1972. The pace was a lot slower then and watching the Network DVD releases of the first 52 episodes, I am immediately struck by the keen plotting and strong character development.

RTE started showing episodes in September 1983 - right from the start, five days a week. It was a glorious time.

Tony Hatch composed the dramatic and windswept theme tune. Rock on.

Comments and feedback are welcome.
