That was quite something for a daytime show - only certain parts of the country had it go out at 6pm, elsewhere it was 5:10pm.  (Bit of a hangover from the scheduling of the original Crossroads in the 80s, where it went either before or after the evening news.)

ITV censorship is alive and well in the ITV3 Emmerdale repeats, some bizarre cuts going on there such as Chris Tate* referring to himself as a cripple.

*for Aussie/NZ fans: Chris was a character rendered permanently paraplegic following a plane crash and becoming very bitter and twisted in the process.

If it wasn't for the timing, I think H&A would have reached higher figures, such as 18 million or more. 1992-1996 was H&A's biggest success in the UK here, H&A mania was here, like Neighbours mania 1988-1992.

So many years have been chosen for best ever year on this thread already.

Don't talk to me about ITV playing Surgeon with Emmerdale!

Ugh, For harmless stuff and all. What is wrong with them?!

Granada Plus never acted like this when they played the 1989-2001 run of the show.

1995 followed by 1988, 1994, 1989 and 2004.

Jack Wilson was great, he often was up to no good and used the cover of darkness to get up to his pranks such as when he crept into Don's bedroom thinking it was Angel, and when Aftershave the dog wrecked Alf's shop in the middle of the night and Jack was almost caught trying to retrieve the dog, and he pelted Alf with flour and eggs before running off into the night. At the time Alf did not know who doused him until Jack admitted it later.
