EastEnders celebrated its 25th anniversary on February 19, 2010. Santer had several plans to mark the occasion, including the first episode broadcast live, the second marriage between Ricky Butcher and Bianca Jackson and the return of Bianca`s relatives, Mother Carol Jackson, and siblings Robbie Jackson, Sonia Fowler and Billie Jackson. He told entertainment site Digital Spy: “It`s really important that the feeling of the week is active and exciting and not too reflective. There will be these moments for some of our longer characters, who will reflect briefly on themselves and how they have changed. The characters don`t know it`s the 25th anniversary of anything, so it would be absurd to invent too many situations in which they reflect the past. The main driver of this week is big stories that are going to get people talking.  The live episode showed the death of Bradley Branning (Charlie Clements) at the end of the Archie “Who killed? – The story in which Bradley`s wife, Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner), revealed that she was the killer. With 16.6 million spectators, the number of spectators reached its highest level in seven years.  Other events to mark this anniversary were a spin-off DVD, EastEnders: Last Tango in Walford, and an Internet spin-off, EastEnders: E20. On the other hand, the French claimed that their relationship with the Middle East dates back to the Crusades. They also had great economic interests in Syria. Much of North Africa became the periphery of the main Muslim centers of the Middle East, but Iberia (Al-Andalus) and Morocco quickly took control of this remote control and founded one of the most advanced societies in the world at the time, along with Baghdad in the eastern Mediterranean. Between 831 and 1071, the Emirate of Sicily was one of the most important centers of Islamic culture in the Mediterranean.
After the conquest of the Normans, the island developed its own culture with the fusion of Arab, Western and Byzantine influences. Palermo remained until the Middle Ages a leading artistic and commercial centre of the Mediterranean. EastEnders is known for having a “double comic act” that was originally demonstrated with the characters of Dot and Ethel, whose friendship was one of the most constant in the series.  Other examples are Paul Priestly (Mark Thrippleton) and Trevor Short (Phil McDermott)  In particular, in 1989, characters were designed to be comic or carefree. Among these characters was Julie Cooper (Louise Plowright) – a brass mower; Marge Green – a batty elderly lady played by veteran comic actress Pat Coombs; Trevor Short (Phil McDermott) – The Village Idiot; his friend, the northern heartbreaker Paul Priestly (Mark Thrippleton); Wheeler dealers Vince Johnson (Hepburn Graham) and Laurie Bates (Gary Powell), who became Pete Beale (Peter Dean) training partner.  Most of EastEnders` characters are working-class.  Middle-class characters sometimes become regulars, but have had less success and rarely become long-term characters.
