Producer Jack Barton heads a team of directors, editors, writers, secretarial staff and a cast who he regards as 'his family'.
That same 'family' are always the first to acknowledge that the great success the programme has enjoyed would not have been achieved without the dedicated and professional contribution of the technical and studio crews.
The first episode of Crossroads was transmitted on 2nd November 1964.
On 19th September 1978 the programme will reach its 3,000th episode - an all time record in British television.
Each week four episodes are seen by over 14 million viewers, and the programme consistently heads the ratings in the national 'Top Ten' programme charts, and many of its stars have now become household names.

Crossroads writers
Michala Crees, Ivor Jay, Peter Ling, David Garfield and Ray Bowers
