    •  Emmerdale Coronation Street Eastenders
    •  Realism soaps are made to not look constructed with accurate speech and setting and believable plots, in order to show a more accurate picture of the world rather than the idealised version of reality. Different variations of them include documentary, social, emotional and dramatic.
    •  In realism soaps the editing is made very subtle in order to give the audience the feel of a natural transition between scenes. There has to be an element of continuity. Camera work: Kept simple and avoids any tricks, as they aim to reflect the genuine picture. The camera acts as a casual observer, as if to watch on at the events of the episode.
    •  Lighting is kept very basic, special effects are not used, lighting is made to replicate sunlight or lamps within someone’s home.
    •  Stereotypes used in Emmerdale is the setting of the show, in the rolling hills and showing a lot of countryside. The characters will often be working class, working in industry such as farming. The stereotype can also be expressed through the clothing or accents.
    •  The narratives featured in realism soaps are everyday situations that the audience can relate to. Examples include family arguments and petty crimes. The plots are open-ended with usually three or four storylines running at the same time. There is no overall narrative as soap operas are designed to be continuous. Each episode usually ends with a ‘cliff hanger’ to keep suspense and attract the audience to the next episode.
    •  In soaps the characters drive the plot and act as figures that the audience can relate to. Soap characters reflect the concerns of a modern audience. For example soaps began on radio in the 1930s when women stayed at home, therefore the main characters were women storylines revolved around them.
    •  The purging of emotions or the relieving of emotions through certain kinds of art. The realism allows audiences to relate to the emotions and experiences of characters, this creates an emotional connection.
