Thanks to everybody who has written over the last few weeks. Sorry the pace of life at Back To Beckindale has been a little slower than usual, but I have been ill and not feeling up to long sessions on the keyboard.
To Harper - No, there are no plans to expand the blog to include the 1990s. I simply don't have the material or the time. Sorry!
To Peter D - Quite right, it would be great to have some more material from 1980, 1981 and 1982. I'm working on it!
Thanks for your words of appreciation Sarah, Paul, Dohdoh, Wallace, Ag and Keiran - I'm glad that you're all enjoying the blog.
Please keep the feedback coming!
Coming up soon will be the final part of our original short story, Amos And The Cube, some storyline summaries (with screen caps) from 1980 and 1986, and a review of the final episode of Emmerdale Farm, broadcast in 1989.
