    Exclamation Emmerdale announces special documentary for 50th anniversary

    Emmerdale will mark its 50th anniversary with a special documentary to air on ITV.

    The upcoming film celebrating the soap will feature classic Emmerdale clips as well as rarely seen gems straight from the archive, including feuds and more lighthearted moments that fans of the village know and love.

    The doc will involve past and present cast members, ready to watch back their most famous storylines to share reflections on their characters.

    Airing this autumn, the celebratory tribute will look back on some of the soap's 74 weddings, 43 births and 105 deaths since it first aired its first episode in October 1972.

    Additionally, it will reminisce over some of the show's most popular dynasties, such as The Sugdens, The Tates and The Dingles.

    Known as Emmerdale Farm until 1989, the soap was created by playwright Kevin Laffan. He will take part in the documentary to discuss how the audience reacted to depictions of rural life on TV and how critics responded to the soap.

    Last June, Emmerdale was declared the winner of Best British Soap at this year's British Soap Awards, hosted once again by This Morning's Phillip Schofield.

    The Dingles won big at the event, with the entire clan winning the award for Best Family, while Mark Charnock as Marlon Dingle earned the award for Best Dramatic Performance.

    Additionally, Paige Sandhu, who played villain Meena Jutla, scored Best Leading Performer for her murder storyline which resulted in the baddie finally being brought to justice earlier this year. The character was written off the show, with Sandhu departing in April.
