Brookside is a television series that was set in Liverpool, England. The show started to air on Channel 4 sometime in November and aired for 21 years until November 2003. It was supposed to be called by another name this series was a big name production. The show was thought of by a man named Phil Redmond whom had ideas for a few other shows.

Brookside had a smaller cast than most soap operas and wanted to focus on only six households. The first cast that appeared to was just under 16 people and would be a year before the other houses on Brookside became full. Redmond wanted for the show to appear as though that there was a time frame for the other houses to become occupied. Therefore, beginning episodes concentrated on the development of the Grant family, with Sheila and Bobby who eventually climbed upward on the money scale they apparently upgrade to a four bedroom eventually.

Most of Brookside's past dialogues were focused primarily on the community issues but were also centered around Bobby and Sheila's shaky marriage. Bobby's lack of patience and frequent visits to the picket line, long with Sheila's visits to the stuck up attitude made this show interesting for many viewers, as did the comics of their three children Barry, Karen, and Damon. The Jackson family consisted of strong characters that had lived at Brookside for two years before eventually leaving Liverpool.

The composers of the show were Steve Wright and Dave Roylance. Although the theme is thanks to Wirral, Dave.

The plot and characters had a complicated dynamic but that is what made the series air for nearly twenty-one years.
