|Did Vi Carson inspire Tony|
Warren with an old folk song?
I've just been reading Sean Egan's 'Very Unofficial History of Coronation Street' book and he floats the idea that this song may have indeed played a role in TV history. The song is called Bolton's Yard and it started life as a poem. If you'd like to read it, it's printed on my blog (and it's been translated from the local dialect in which it was originally penned), at the link below.
