Emmerdale 1918 is a six-part documentary series that will mark 100 years since the end of the First World War.
It sees six of Emmerdale's stars (Mark Charnock, Charlotte Bellamy, Natalie J Robb, Zoe Henry, John Middleton and Bhasker Patel) go back in time to explore the lives of the real Yorkshire heroes from the village of Esholt - where the show was filmed for 22 years.
'From Woolpack chef to the real wartime cook, village vicar to the battlefield priest, telly farmer to the real country land girl and Emmerdale vet to the real frontline vet. Inspired by amazing stories of gallantry, sacrifice and heartbreak from villages in rural Yorkshire, including the actual village that Emmerdale was based on, they’ll honour these hidden heroes when the cast come together to host their very own Emmerdale Armistice celebration.'
