Brookside at 40

Special guests for this event included a Corkhill family reunion with stars John McArdle (Billy), Kate Fitzgerald (Doreen), Justine Kerrigan (Tracy), Paula Francis (Diana) and George Christopher (“Little Jimmy”), plus surprise guest Michael Starkey (Sinbad).

It’s 40 years since Brookside exploded onto our TV screens. The iconic soap was a great showcase for Liverpool’s creative talent, both on screen and behind the scenes, and launched the stellar careers of many household names.
