Coronation Street. Began 1960. In the 1980's this was my very favourite show, when it was about everyday life in a town near Manchester, England. Then it turned into a less realistic soap opera. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coronation_Street. Only 5.8 on imdb http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0053494/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1. There are summaries on http://coronationstreet.wikia.com/wiki/Category:2010s and www.corrie.net.
