Emmerdale is one of the longest running soaps in the world,
Since 1972, Itv and Yorshire Telelvision have been bringing you this fanastic drama. The Set & Studio was designed by Phil Redmond. He constructed a new dedicated Emmerdale Production Centre, right next door to the Emmerdale TV Centre. The new studio complex, which was opened by the then Prime Minister John Major in 1997, is trumpeted by YTV as the largest single floor TV production facility in the world. The mill at Farsley - which has its production facilities on three floors - was kept by YTV as an interior set base for Heartbeat and A Touch of Frost.
But the final piece of the jigsaw still hadn't been put in place - an exterior set, closed to the public, which would enable unrestricted filming.YTV explored the possibility of building a complete outdoor set on land belonging to the Queen's cousin, George Lascelles, the 7th EarlActors:
