Brookside was an iconic British television soap set in Liverpool that ran between 1982 – 2003 on Channel 4.

Over it’s 21 year run, showing life for families in a cul-de-sac, it featured many controversial and headline grabbing storylines including sex, drugs, murders, LGBTQ+ issues and many more. There were also lots of funny moments too that everyone could relate to and that’s why we loved it.

Since it ended, many fans have wished for it to return or to relive classic moments by watching old episodes. In 2023, STV player started streaming the series from the beginning.
