Eldorado (1992)

Concept and creative process

'Eldorado', the ill-fated soap opera about the lives of ex-patriot Brits in Spain, was an audience ratings flop for the BBC and ran for only 156 episodes between 1992-93. Alan Jeapes created a low-key, timeless title of sunrise over the sea with a bold title logo, in a similar vein to his earlier title for the highly successful 'EastEnders' for the same production team. Entirely created using computer generated imagery in sync to the music.
