Soap operas are a national obsession in Britain. Soaps have consistently rated in the top 10 of Britain's Most Watched TV since 1960s and single episodes of Coronation Street and EastEnders have reached over 19 million viewers alone. This book will appeal to regular viewers of soaps, to trivia buffs and to quiz goers.
The major British soaps are included (Coronation Street, Eastenders, Emmerdale, Hollyoaks) and current Australian Soaps (Neighbours, Home and Away) plus smaller sections on old soaps (Brookside, Crossroads, El Dorado, The Young Doctors, Dynasty, Dallas, Family Affairs).Categories cover memorable characters and plot lines: Rogues and Romeos (Dirty Den), Singing Soap Stars (Natalie Imbruglia, Shane Ritichie), Births and Deaths, Battleaxes (Ena Sharples, Pat Evans), Wedding Bells (Charlene & Scott), Affairs, Cameo Appearances (Lleyton Hewitt, Prince Charles).
There are a mixture of question styles - straightforward question and answer, true or false, 'who am I?', 'who said this?' and multiple choice. The level ranges from easy for the general reader to the downright difficult for the soap addicts.
