Storyline

To celebrate 1500 episodes of UK soap opera "Crossroads" (1964) a special 'episode' aired in place of one of the usual serial. The celebration episode ditched the usual high drama for more comedy. This included the return of one of the "forgotten" characters; Benny Wilmott who had gone out for some sugar in 1966 and failed - until this special - to return. The show was a send up of the usual Crossroads, and none of the 'plots' featured were discussed or followed up in the following more regular editions of the soap. Written by MikeGne

So much wiped!

This programme is talked about in a few books, but the one I remember the most is the bit in the 2001 book, The Crossroads Story. It says how Benny Wilmot came back with the sugar five years later from going for it.. to much amusement of the other actors in the "scene" being carried out.

But since we have never seen any clips from this special. I assume it has been lost forever in the ATV reusing tapes policy? IT does sound funny, and it was always good to see the Crossroads cast sending themselves up (last time was 1994 in the BBC spoof episodes of Crossroads.)
