Coronation Street first hit British screens at the end of 1960, a groundbreaking show based on real life and using accents that had never been heard on British television before. It was an instant hit, and has remained consistently one of the UK's most popular shows ever since. The joy of Coronation Street is in the quality and humor of its writing, and the wonderful characters that have been created over the years. For the first time, here is a book that not only reminds readers of all the storylines over the last fifty years, but also celebrates these two very special things. The book includes profiles of fifty Coronation Street icons--from Ena Sharples to David Platt--and the author has had unprecedented access in order to include interviews with all of those still with us. There are also hilarious extracts from the script and classic lines remembered.

This book is terrific for fans and dabblers alike. It's great fun to look back and find the story lines that you'd forgotten from 20 years ago. Great photos, great commentary.

This was fun to look through - for fans of the show. Look back at the clothing, hairstyles and story lines you forgot about.
