Coronation Street facts and figures up for sale on eBay

A friend of mine has found this Coronation Street book of facts and figures while he was cleaning out his back room.  It doesn't look like an official publication and I wonder if anyone knows where it has come from and who Terry M is?

If you're interested in buying it, it's for sale on eBay now.

Here are the details:

Not to wish to rain on anybody's parade without seeing the contents of this publication but it probably doesn't contain any info that is not freely available on the Corriepedia website.

And probably a lot less than that site.

Terry M visits another Corrie chat site, although he hasn't been posting on it for a while. And yes, he is Canadian. From Ottawa, if my memory serves me well. ( Guestbook)
I will make a post on that site, and hopefully he is still lurking around :)

AT the time Terry put this together, he offered it for sale to the guestbook posters and any others. This was before Wiki and Corriepedia and was quite comprehensive up to that date in 2005. He did a lot of hard work putting it all together. Yes, it's all available online now but it wasn't back then.

I rememberTeryM from the old CSVU coronation street visual updates we site, in tne early days of the world wide web. Even before itv had their own website, someone called David I think used to do reviews of daily episodes with screen shots of variuos scenes and quite funny commentry. That was in 1999. It was a great website for overseas fans who were 2 years behind or couldnt watch it. He was later made an offer by ITV to do a website for them and after a few years once catch up videos were introduced it all stopped. TerryM was a fan who posted quite regularly and was very knowledgable. He tried to sell some hand made books that he'd put together. This is probably one of them. As its unofficial who knows how accurate it is. Its probably a lot more accurate than the current archivist at coronation street. For real authority daran little has published some official books.

Terry M lives(d) about 2 km from my house in the west end of Ottawa and I paid for and picked up a copy at his house. He was a very knowledgeable man. The book was interesting but unfortunately with Wikipedia and other sites some of the information has been superceded.

Mike Plowman was the author of the CSVU updates and he did it with his girlfriend (now wife?) who he met online from Canada due to their shared interest in CS. Not sure where those updates are now
