Family Affairs is Channel 5's five nights a week
The show began at the same time as Channel 5, and began as being based around the lives of one family, the Harts. In an attempt to raise the programmes profile Brian Park (ex-Coronation Street) was brought in as a new Producer and in one of the most radical revamps in Soap history killed off the entire family. The show is now Executive Produced by Corinne Hollingworth and Produced by Vivian Adam and Mike Hudson.
The production schedule has varied in the past, but now consists of three long location days and four studio days to make five episode. Made initially at HDS Studios in Hayes, the programme moved in with "The Bill" in Merton in May 2000 and now has it's own backlot.
