All aboard the rickety climate bandwagon, destination Glasgow. Soap operas being vehicles for government propaganda – that’s never happened before, surely (cough)? Reality will just be that over-long gap between episodes. Or watch something else.

For the first time in British television history, the country’s soaps and continuing dramas have joined forces to highlight the issue of climate change and environmental issues, says itv.com.

Casualty, Coronation Street, Doctors, EastEnders, Emmerdale, Holby City and Hollyoaks have each filmed scenes, or have references, to cover different aspects of climate change and, in a soap first, five of the soaps will also be referencing each other as each drama will also give a nod to another.

Viewers will see some of Britain’s best loved characters pop up in another soap as they discuss, or see the moments, that have been debated in another show in a bid to raise awareness of climate change.

The landmark event will see a Hollyoaks character pop up in Walford while villagers of the Chester soap will learn about events at Holby City.

A social media video featuring two of Emmerdale’s residents will be shown to Coronation Street characters, whilst one of BBC One’s Doctors will appear on the cobbles of Coronation Street.

Casualty will also be discussed in The Woolpack, and a social media clip from Weatherfield will be chatted about in The Queen Vic, as the soaps all come together for a special week.

The drama begins on Monday 1 November, the same week as World Leaders meet to discuss the climate crisis at the COP26 conference.

    Dr. Goebbels would be proud of the British.

    Doubt I’m alone in wondering who organised this?

    “Or watch something else.'”

    A bit ago I realised the TV had been off in this house for ages, don’t even watch the news or repeats any more – until Bake Off started. They don’t seem to mention CAGW. More important things to worry about, or maybe being in a bubble in a tent away from the nutters helps.

    I must be a wimp for still paying the fee, because there is clearly barely anything either of us can bear to watch any longer.

    And who has the imbecilic mind to watch that drivel? Was it CNN that was down to a viewership of 100K?

    “UNLIKE the pattern which seems to prevail in the rest of life, in the human species the weak not only survive but often triumph over the strong. The self-hatred inherent in the weak unlocks energies far more formidable than those mobilized by an ordinary struggle for existence. The weakness of a soul is proportionate to the number of truths that must be kept from it.” The Passionate State of Mind

    Good idea to associate ‘climate change’ with fictional drama.

    Even the TV news [sic] is resorting to climate fiction to get viewers…

    Fake news 🙄

    My RED Button is wearing out – had to get another Rem Control, much to the frustration (lost income ) of the power supply company,,, and I sleep MUCH better.

    Raise awareness?

    This is completely political, and for the BBC at least a clear breach of its charter. Would they do the same for say privatisation as a Tory policy?

  8. Mack says:

    Well the ‘Sovietisation’ of U.K. telly has been going on for years, it was just more subtle before than the blatant propaganda that is being shoved down our throats now. Casualty is one of the worst offenders and scrapes the barrels of snowflakery and grievance culture with ever increasing gusto. Hopefully, in celebration of the (fantasy) climate emergency, in a soon to be screened episode, their Bristol TV set will be flattened by a tsunami when a wobbly Gulf Stream affected Severn Bore runs amok, and we can then return to watching re-runs of Carry on Doctor. Now that’s entertainment!

    90 pages of government sponsored climate alarm in one document…

    Living better with a changing climate
    Report to Ministers under the Climate Change Act

    Limiting carbon emissions is the most effective way to combat climate change, but while
    mitigation might save the planet, it is adaptation, preparing for climate shocks, that will save millions of lives

    ‘Save the planet’ junk all the way.

    IPCC ⇆ Soap Opera

    One does hope it snows heavily.

  13. Coeur de Lion says:

    Do read Donna Laframboise on the dishonesties of the IPCC. Or her subsequent book (2013) on the continuing train wreck of sex mad Rajendra Pachauri’s governance.
