1985: Up Go The Ratings...

Good news for Walter and Seth as Emmerdale Farm's viewers rapidly increase...
TV TIMES 8-14 June 1985.
.
Enough to make old Walter speak?! Not quite, but Emmerdale Farm's increasing success, attracting nearly fifteen million viewers in 1985, was a cause for joy for fans of the show and for everybody in "Beckindale"!
.
One surprise, now the London area has joined the series at peak viewing time, is that more Southerners are warming to the rustic drama of the farm than are drawn to a cockney-based rival soap shown at the same time.

I can't imagine what the "cockney-based rival soap" was, can you?
