The Mersey Television Company Limited Company Profile

17:34 EST 15th December 2018 | BioPortfolio

Mersey Television is based in Liverpool and currently produces HOLLYOAKS for Channel 4 and GRANGE HILL for BBC1.
The company was founded in 1982 by Phil Redmond to make Brookside for Channel 4. The very first episode of the soap opera formed part of the Channel's opening night on air. Production continued uninterrupted for 21 years and over 2900 episodes.
Initially the company was based in premises adjacent to Brookside Close in the West Derby area of Liverpool. However the business soon outgrew this location and in 1990, coinciding with an increase in the number of Brookside episodes from two to three per week, it moved to Campus Manor, a former further education college site in the Childwall area of the city.
HOLLYOAKS began in 1995, initially as a teen soap airing just once a week. It has been a stalwart fixture of Channel 4's teatime schedules ever since, steadily increasing its episode count until reaching five times a week in 2003.
The BBC contracted out the production of GRANGE HILL to Mersey TV in 2002, and the first series to be made in Liverpool aired in spring 2003. The BBC has since renewed its contract with Mersey TV, covering production of GRANGE HILL through to its 30th anniversary in 2008.
