Grange Hill was a groundbreaking BBC children’s series which ran from 8 February 1978 until 15 September 2008, for a total of 31 series. This display marks the 40th anniversary since it was first screened.
The series was written and produced by Phil Redmond, and was originally based on his own Liverpool school days. He set ‘Grange Park’, which would eventually become ‘Grange Hill’, at a local comprehensive school in the fictional borough of Northam in London.
This display explores the programme’s direct link to Liverpool through writer Phil Redmond, and the impact and influence of often explosive storylines to generations of children who are now grown up.
The display includes a number of unique objects from Phil’s personal Grange Hill archive.
