    As an erstwhile floor/unit manager on Emmerdale and a colleague of Keith's many moons ago I simply want to say how appalled I am at what has happened to the programme, cast and production staff. Though far away from
    Yorkshire tv now it appears to be the usual story of 'the poor wot gets the blame' and can but wish everyone all the best considering it certainly 'is a bleeding shame', Tom Adam
