Emmerdale
"The Last Dance"
60s
10 October 2016
UK TV Programmes

Emmerdale create suspense for their teased October death in this atmospheric trail. Opening with an ominous ticking clock, the tension builds from the start as Dinah Washington's 'What A Difference A Day Makes' echoes though an undefined space that must have taken a fair whack of the budget to fill with dry ice. A shadowy spectre billows threateningly around our couples - dancing, appropriately - as we wonder who will take their last dance and be killed this Autumn.

Emmerdale
"Summer Fate"
60s
20 Jul 2015
Any hopes of a carefree summer for the residents of Emmerdale are soon to be dashed if this stylish trail is anything to go by. Dressed head to toe in black, characters find a hellish portal waiting for them in the forest - the question is who's it for? Breaking Bad fans will recognise the background song from the season four finale and it's used to good effect here too.

Emmerdale
"The Honeymoon's Over"
20s
21 Nov 2012
This dramatic trail suggests that the soap is continuing to treat its viewers to edgier storylines... quite literally here as one of the characters teeters on the edge of catastrophe. From the look of some of this footage, we're guessing that this is a specially filmed trail rather than mere excerpts.

Emmerdale
"Live Episode"
30s
10 Oct 2012
The denizens of Emmerdale are never going to be able to match the drama of the Lockerbie-style incident that wiped out half the sheep and a quarter of the cast a decade ago... not so long as the nearby Churn-O-Bill nuclear reactor is running safely anyhow. But they will try and next week they're running a live episode as part of their 40th anniversary celebrations. What could go wrong? Tune in to find out.

Emmerdale
"Small Village, Big Drama"
60s
22 Sep 2012
Emmerdale is about to celebrate its fortieth anniversary and it looks like they've lined up some explosive storylines to mark the occasion. This diverting trail makes it look as though there's little in the way of fidelity in this stretch of Yorkshire and this is going to provide the dynamic for forthcoming plots.

Emmerdale
"Judgement Day"
60s
19 Nov 2011
One of the characters from the ITV soap walks moodily through the village in this trail which promises that Judgement Day is coming. We're assuming that this doesn't simply refer to the National Soap awards where the cast of Emmerdale always get the opportunity to show off their acting skills... by holding it together while watching Eastenders and Coronation Street actors picking up all the gongs.

Emmerdale
"Title Sequence"
30s
4 Jul 2011
The title sequence for Emmerdale successfully conveys the idea that this soap opera has come a long way over the years. It isn't just the discarded clothes on the bedroom floor either... there's an overall sense of slickness and although title sequences tend to preach to the converted, this looks designed to raise viewers' expectations.

Emmerdale
"It's Far From Quiet"
30s
18 Sep 2009
The return of Charity Dingle provides ITV with an opportunity to run an intriguing trail for their early evening soap opera. There's shades of an old Cadbury Flake ad in this sequence which shows actress Emma Atkins making it look like Charity's up to no good... again.

Emmerdale
"Quiet in the Country"
30s
17 Jul 2006
Much to the bemusement of the target audience, a painting by Caravaggio is recalled in this striking piece for ITV's early evening soap opera. The residents are caught in a moment that manages to suggest tremendous events in the sleepy village with its unfair share of violent incident.
