50 Years Of Corrie In 50 Days

When Coronation Street was first broadcast on December 9th 1960 not even its creator Tony Warren could have dreamed that the programme would still be entertaining viewers 50 years later. To celebrate this momentous milestone, over the next 50 days we will be counting down to the 50th anniversary by looking at some of the events, characters and places featured in the show over the years and looking behind the scenes at how they came about.

A lot has happened over the years and so we can’t promise to feature all your favourite moments or characters so feel free to chip in with your own memories of the show through the years.

To get you in the mood, why not have a look at that very first episode here, here and here. Also, there’s a summary of the episode here  by our very own Tvor.

With many thanks to Daran Little and Sean Egan whose books have been invaluable in compiling this countdown.

It has too much violence and horror now. The show born 50 years ago is dead.
