    as for me regardless of grange hill - phil is a very inflential man in tv circles, he created brrookside .... C4's first ever soap and years before easteenders at that, then saved emmerdale when the old writers knew it could'nt be just "emmerdalle farm" no longer and hollyaks will be 25 in 2020 too!

    The British Isles needs it I think Daarren, like in the 70s all kids knew about School was soft imaginary shows like Billy The Kid etc, if it was dune as so it'd take TV back full swing to before reality TV began and how programmes did educate kids and youth etc like GH and The Bill even too!

    I saw Arran Bell once as an employee of The Firm in EastEnders back in '88. Didn't look at all intimidating or scary. Not like Ziggy Byfield or the guy who played Dolly's husband in Widows.

    If they bring back GH, good for them.

    Like somebody said ( or rather what I read elswhere) "school's will always exist, so we need school type programes andit is the same with the Police etc - now we have no The Bill, but we need shows like that not CSI Investigates etc ... let this Grange Hill chance go now and the chance is wrecked forever I think (and only 11 Years aftit ended - nearly)

    All of us who love it as fans Imho should get behind Phil's Ideas - so the BBC CAN not tirn it down!!

    As well as his thoughts on knife crime etc - we could ve even pick up where we left off in Series 25 (not literally) but "scrap" the Liverpool years and call it a spin-off, as even 17 years back we had Cyber Bullying, Knife Crime in 1998 Series, so if Phil's as serious as he is and as influential it's o a true-true winner I say!

    Quite a few good points made - schools will always exist, but I have always said that there is a lot more education going on outside a school then inside one. Remember that we had police dramas before The Bill started - The Sweeney; Dixon of Dock Green, Z Cars, etc. Casualty and Holby City represents hospitals, etc. Grange Hill is closer to the focus of schools than a series like Please Sir! would be.

    Obviously knife crime is a delicate subject for a programme shown not only before the watershed but in children's hour as GH was - the mainstream soap operas have shown knife attacks even if they are before the watershed - a Brian Tilsley-alike stabbing would be too graphic for a post-Newsround slot. It does happens as we know from the news, and it happened in my own area before I moved to where I am now.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    If New Series are'nt going to happen, Darren - I still think (or hope) the best that Phil could offer us, what actually happened between 2002 and 2003 (S25 and S26). So many people want answers to the supposed 60 what died and characters like our beloved Mr Jeff Hankin who probably had an even bigger nervous breakdown than the one Kieron "Ozzie" Osbourne caused him to have a year before

    As well there is Deverill (Wilcox), it has to be said he must easily have been up on Mass Manslaughter Charges as well as Child Abuse Charges in both this Job and at Congreave Hall and faking I.D to use Wilcox's name

    I have wanted to know this out-come for too long and it is even said in S26, he was probably doing Prison-Time - so part of the plot isallready in existance and just needs a bit more re-jigging storyline-wise and even if it was set now in 2020, voices could be used for the Kids who bore witness to the the Fire - if not faces to make it seem it was still in 2002/2003

    Nearly 20 years has gone by and as much as Phil wanted a change and arguably extended Grange Hill's life 6 Years, closure really really is needed (as I don't know if I can bare - never knowing the true outcome) which was arguably brought on by sketchy storyline writting about prior events of S25 after the move, regardless of the move

    I have always wondered what Grange Hill would be like in 2020 if the series was still on TV screens - would the school have a different headteacher? - who would the main pupils be? - would it be an academy and would have a different name by now?

    I would guess that with the last question, it would have changed like that by now.

    It would be like Waterloo Rd I'd imagine George, and it'd be rough etc like WR and like most Schools (I[d imagine are) these days!)

    I just hope they 'd never have gone down a Polo Shirt/Sweater uniform and abolishing the Blazer/tie - or worse than Polos/Sweaters, Clip-On TIES!

    I bet he was good though!

    I had heard somewhere - he is the son of Arran Bell snr - who is a Director of Programmes or something similar
