Wonderful Wizards of Weatherfield

The Wonderful Wizards of Weatherfield – 50 Years of Coronation Street: A Masterclass is part of the MediaGuardian Edinburgh International Television festival, 27-29 August.

It began with three women - all with different temperaments, values, backgrounds and social standing and it instantly captured the hearts of the nation. Fifty years on, and the audience are still captivated by these ordinary people leading ordinary lives. Other soaps have evolved but the DNA of Coronation Street remains the same: strong characters, family ties, brilliant writing and a huge injection of humour. Join actress Katherine Kelly (Becky McDonald), the critic Gareth MacLean and producer Kieran Roberts to discuss the highs and lows of the wonderful world of Weatherfield.

Ooh, I'm jealous! Fancy doing a little blog post after the event to let us know all about it?

Will do - including the bit with me standing up making a show of myself, asking "What about this flaming bloodbath then? who's for the chop?" ;))
