EastEnders is the ongoing saga of life in London’s East End. Focusing on the multiracial community who live and work in and around Albert Square, its storylines move effortlessly between comedy and tragedy. Although it never shies away from controversial issues, it is family entertainment enjoyed by viewers of all ages. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of this popular series (in February 2005), EastEnders takes a nostalgic look back over the life of Albert Square, revisiting all the classic moments, the characters we’ve grown to love, the romances and conflicts—all that has made EastEnders a favorite soap on both sides of the Atlantic. The book also takes us behind the scenes to see how the show is created, from the writing of the script to the filming. Nostalgic, informative, and entertaining, this is your essential guide to the award–winning series.
