15 Years of EastEnders (sometimes called: EastEnders Happy 15th Birthday) is a 75 minutes compilation of over 2000 EastEnders episodes. It was written and directed by numerous writers and directors.


This programme celebrates fifteen years of everybody's favourite cockney soap opera. Classic moments from over a decade of EastEnders are collected here, including Den serving Angie with divorce papers, Arthur having his nervous breakdown, Tiffany's death, and the murder of Eddie Royle.

There is also a special feature on the weddings of Albert Square, with couples such as Michelle and Lofty, Peggy and Frank, and Grant and Sharon all tying the knot. In addition, there is a specially made film presented by Barbara Windsor, containing interviews with the cast, behind-the-scenes footage and some unlikely cameo appearances.
