Waterloo Road

Waterloo Road is a fictional school set in Rochdale. The drama has mass appeal to a wide ranging audience and, although the drama features good and bad teachers and pupils, at its heart is a message that a few good teachers in one school can succeed in achieving the near-impossible.

Originally commissioned in 2005 for eight episodes, Waterloo Road has grown over the years and is now enjoying a fifth series.  In total, 80 hours have been produced - a testament to its popularity with viewers, which peaked at 6m in March 2008.  The show has featured actors such as Angela Griffin, Jason Merrells, Jill Halfpenny, Eva Pope and Neil Morrissey.
