Goodbye Granadaland programme, shown on ITV1 this weekend, it's well worth a look.
For Coronation Street fans in particular, it's worth viewing from around the 48 minute mark onwards because there are some lovely little behind-the-scenes snippets worth watching.
The programme is narrated by Suranne Jones, who played Karen McDonald and includes contributions from Corrie creator Tony Warren and Corrie actors Barbara Knox and Philip Lowrie (Rita and Dennis Tanner) as well as ex-cast members Julie Goodyear (Bet Gilroy) and Sally Lindsay (Shelley Unwin).
Brooke Vincent, who plays Sophie Webster is interviewed and says this about Corrie: "Looking back to how it first started, it's like a different programme. A completely different programme".
I'm not sure I agree with that statement. What do you think?
The original Head of Wardrobe called Edna Walker talked about dressing Pat Phoenix as Elsie Tanner with her tight blouses, and said that Doris Speed wanted comfy shoes as Annie Walker. Priceless.
Then host Peter Kay, who himself appeared on Corrie once as a brewery drayman, had a peek into the props store, a veritable warehouse of a place housing Corrie props including such unlikely things as Sunita's coffin and Fred Elliot's coffin and a pair of Deirdre's very early - and huge - glasses.
Here's Peter Kay pictured holding the urns with ashes of Jack and Vera Duckworth.
What will happen to all of these old props, no longer needed, by Coronation Street as they move from the Quay Street set to the new one at Media City?
We've read in the tabloids in the past of Corrie props being found in rubbish skips, thrown out and unwanted. I've even seen Corrie props up for sale on eBay by someone who worked for the show.
Would it be too much to hope that these props, these amazing bits of history from Coronation Street the longest running soap in the world - might find their way into a museum of some sort, a tribute? Let's hope so.
