Albert Square. The Butchers, The Di Marcos, The Beales and the Fowlers. To create this title sequence, an aircraft flew over the east end of London at about 1000ft. taking photographs in strips. This was done over several days and about 800 photos were taken, developed and pasted together like a mosaic.
You can find out lots more information about Albert Square at the BBC EastEnders website.
