Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Created by Don Houghton, the twice-weekly soap opera Take the High Road was Scottish television's answer to the popular British serial Emmerdale Farm. A huge, ever-changing cast appeared as the residents of Glendarroch, a Scottish village with more than its share of sexual hijinks, deep dark secrets, and other assorted dramatic complications. The series began its lengthy run in 1980, with creator Houghton handling the lion's share of the writing chores. Since 1995, the program has been known simply as High Road.
