Ten years on and CROSSROADS lives on for TV soap fans
CROSSROADS – famed for its wobbly scenery – ran for an initial 24 years from 1964 to 1988 and was revamped for the 21st century in 2001. But this year marks the tenth anniversary of the show - which attracted nine million viewers at its height - being laid to rest for good.

Now fans are preparing to commemorate the landmark, which falls in May, while next year marks the 50th anniversary of the first episode’s broadcast. A spokesman for the Crossroads Appreciation Society, the show’s official fan club, said a number of special events were being planned.
