Mark Lawson on Grimetime TV: why the north rules

From Coronation Street to Cold Feet, the north of England has dominated TV drama. The Guardian's Mark Lawson, who is a huge Corrie fan, reveals the grim truth about why southerners don't get a look in.  Ok, so this isn't primarily about Coronation Street but using the above picture of Elsie and Dennis Tanner was too great a chance not to take to promote this piece!

Hmmm... well the Midlands are hardly North, are they? And what about the early soaps on Radio, The Archers, Mrs Dale's Diary? The English make me laugh, always squabbling over trivia!
