The Secret of Soaps - Royal Television Society event in London

The Secret of Soaps is a Royal Television Society event in London on Tuesday 24th November.

This event reveals the story behind the stories: how plot lines are created, how characters are developed and how teams of writers, producers, directors and designers put together more than 600 episodes of drama every year. Mini dramas that have become the mainstay of the ITV schedule.

The high turnover of shows, together with high impact means that a soap like Coronation Street has become the richest training ground for budding writers, directors, designers and producers in the industry.

This event will take you behind the scenes as the panel deconstruct one episode, to illustrate the extraordinary journey it takes from the 'writers room' to screen; a journey that will take nearly a year. It is an absorbing narrative that will be told by those in the front line.

Panel:
Stuart Blackburn, Producer Coronation Street
Debbie Oates, Writer Coronation Street
Tina O’Brien (Sarah Platt)
John Whiston, Creative Director, Serial Dramas, ITV Studios

Chaired by Paul Jackson
