Based on the hugely popular soap opera, this saga explores the lives of Emmerdale's much-loved families during the Great War and beyond. Can the nation's favourite village keep calm and carry on? World War I rages on and the families of Emmerdale are trying their best to move on from tragedy, while the effects of war still resonate throughout the village of Beckindale. Though grief and loss permeate, life carries on in The Woolpack pub and on Emmerdale Farm. Maggie Sugden, Annie King and the other inhabitants of the village are also discovering more independence, the chance to make their own happiness - and even opening themselves up to finding love.
