Crossroads Carlton



Programme Guide

Central

Outline:

Originally titled The Midland Road, Crossroads was set in a Midlands Motel in the fictitious village of King’s Oak. In the 2001 version, Crossroads has turned into a posh four star hotel.

It originally centred on Meg Richardson (Noele Gordon), daughter Jill (Jane Rossington) and son Sandy (Roger Tonge) and their family.

ATV As the soap started to run at five nights a week, the hurried production schedule and the favour of recording it as if it were live became the butt of endless jokes, however the viewers loved it. Occasionally scooping over 18 million viewers made it a huge success.

But in 1981, ATV, the Production Company since it began, lost its ITV franchise to Central. Central took over the running of the show, but with it made some drastic changes. The Motel was burnt down (this was in order for Central to build a new set), Meg Richardson was written out to leave on the QE2 and not long after the open theme was given a more modern tone.

The series was to run for another seven years until Easter Monday 1988 when the Motel finally closed its doors due to poor scripts and loosing viewers.

However, Carlton, the company that now owns Central has brought the show back. New cast, new times and a whole new image, this Crossroads is aimed at the slightly younger audience than before as it is now occupying the old Home & Away slot.

Only Jill Harvey, ex-husband Adam Chance and Doris Luke returned from the original series, which turned out to be a dream anyway...

Your Views:
I have just read your website and hopefully I can get a few questions answered, I have just watched a programme on tv called "Grass" and I'm 100% positive I have seen Glenda from crossroads in it, am I correct? Also I have only found out that Jane Rossington was in emergency ward 10 can you tell me if she was in it the same time as "Desmond Carrington"?
