Welcome to Crossroads Online: The Online episode guide for Crossroads

 

I know this is something of a fool-hardy venture. I intend to watch and document episodes of Crossroads– the teatime favourite soap that was loved by millions… (and millions) of viewers between 1964 and 1988. The period of time that I am going to be looking at starts at the very end of the “ATV” era of the soap, just before the motel fire in November 1981.

 

The early 1980’s is a period of change on screen– as the familiar 1970’s style motel gives way to the er… “modern” 1980’s… AND it was a period of change off-screen as ATV became Central Independent Television.

 

Which episodes are you looking at?

 

Well ideally– all of them! My reason for this is clear: The episodes upto 1979 have all been released on DVD and more recently many of these have been broadcast by Big Centre TV HERE, whereas the 1980’s episodes have been less easy to come across.

 

Many of the episodes I will be watching were repeated by UK Gold in the late 1990’s. You can see how Jane Rossington introduced the repeats to viewers by clicking HERE. However, I have also delved back into early 1981, courtesy of the official DVD releases and episode clips supplied by the Crossroads Appreciation Society, in order to “set the scene”

 

Why bother writing an episode guide to Crossroads when everyone already knows what happened?

 

The first answer has to be “Why not?” I enjoy watching Crossroads and think this is a great excuse to go over the old episodes again. This time I can digest the stories, see links to past and future storylines, and comment on what I feel are the successful… and least successful parts of the show.

 

There is already a fabulous site that details storylines from 1974 to 1985 called “Crossroads Retold” and I highly recommend that you visit as it contains storylines for episodes that are sadly no longer available in the archive to watch. Click HERE to visit my page of Crossroads links.

 

So how is this site any different?

 

I hope that by linking episode numbers and transmission dates to each episode I can provide a source of reference for anyone wanting to locate exactly “when” events happened in the show. I hope to include other sources of information– such as TV Times synopsis for some of the episodes.

 

I hope that by including screen captures from every single scene that it is possible to identify when each cast member appeared and how the sets changed– and of course– to see what the episodes looked like! I also want to show each and every cliffhanger…

Just for fun!

 

This project would not have been possible without the help of various people, but notably everyone at the Crossroads Appreciation Society who constantly provide a wealth of information on the series.

 

Can I help?

 

Yes of course; I am always interested to hear of your opinions about the episodes I have been looking at. If you would like to drop me a comment about any of the episodes, then please do. The address is available on my page of Crossroads links. See above.
