English Channel was an update of the Grapevine format, in higher-definition, widescreen. We used the same actors, Steve Steen and Jim Sweeney. We used the same sketch show format with a basic cast switching roles, and we wrote two more Dennis Cook stories as well.
We intended it to be more of the same, which learners could use as well as Grapevine as much as instead of Grapevine.
There is detailed information, Student Book pages and guides to using English Channel with our other materials at www.viney.uk.com.

CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE … but the English File Self Study Edition in Spain contains the English Channel episodes (in a slightly different sequence).
