1974

It’s just a lot of offal – December 1974

By August 1974 there is a 2 episode discrepancy between TV Brain and Production Office paperwork. This is partly due to an additional episode shown in December 1973 and a changing TX schedule during the World Cup (June / July 1974)

 

August 1974 episode numbers confirmed by DVD releases and Script Front page.

THANKS AND CREDITS

 

I would like to thank Kaleidoscope / Chris Perry and the information held on www.tvbrain.info for help compiling this database.

I would also like to thank www.radiosoundsfamiliar.co.uk for publishing old copies of TV Times. Looking at these documents has been invaluable.

Thanks also to the “Crossroads Kings Oak 1985-1988” group on Facebook, for uploading episodes onto YouTube. These were extremely useful for finding out writer and director credits. Thank you also, to contributors to the CAS facebook page. Thanks also to Rob Peers for his advice and assistance.  Thanks to Graham Wood @woodg31 on Twitter for uploading many many pages of useful TV listings!

 

 

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/or document episodes of Crossroads– the teatime favourite soap that was loved by millions… (and millions) of viewers between 1964 and 1988.

 

    Which episodes are you looking at?

 

Well ideally– all of them!  

 

    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!

 

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.
