WE'VE had Coronation Street, EastEnders and Emmerdale.
Now the latest soap offering heading for the small screen is Kirklees!
The everyday tales of the people who empty your bins, the people who serve your children their school dinners and the people who provide care services for older people are to be televised in The Council.
In a new series on ITV1 Yorkshire the unsung heroes and heroines of Kirklees Council become the stars.
Instead of the Duckworths and the Dingles, there will be the Pinnocks and the Smithsons.
They will appear in three half-hour, fly-on-the-wall documentaries entitled The Council, which will be shown at 7.30pm on Tuesdays, July 12, 19 and 26 - the same time as East- Enders.
The council, of course, has been rated the best in the Yorkshire region in the past few years.
Programme producer Charlotte Milligan said: "It's been a fascinating few months. There are some real characters working for Kirklees Council.
"Like most people, I took everyday council services for granted. But now I'll look at them in a rather different light."
Kirklees is one of the country's largest councils, serving 400,000 people.
It is recognised by the Government as being one of the most efficient, having being judged for three years as running as an ``excellent and improving" council.
Chief executive Rob Vincent said Kirklees was delighted to have taken part and given the programme makers open access to its services.
"The first I will know about the final outcome of this exercise will be when - like all other viewers - I see it for myself.
"Other than being kept informed of the progress of the venture, the programme-makers have been given unfettered access to the services they chose to feature.
"Staff concerned have been very enthusiastic in taking part.
"I think that is an indication in itself of how much they are proud of, and value, the work they do and the service they provide," said Mr Vincent.
