Corrie cameraman shares his Street memories

This is very interesting and was sent to me by Coronation Street actor Dave Dutton, the man who's played the most parts ever in the show. You can read about him here!

It's an interview with Les Chatfield, who was for many years one of the Corrie cameramen and later became a director on the programme.  The interview comes from the Granadaland Oral History Project. You can follow them on facebook.

In the interview, Les talks about his time on Corrie and mentions a fair few of the original cast in his musings. It's well worth a read at

If you like the archive material, you might also enjoy my interview with the show's original Head of Wardrobe, Edna Walker.

Also, a mention that Daran Little's BAFTA-winning programme The Road to Coronation Street is on ITV3 tonight (Sunday 27 December) at 10.45pm.  If you haven't seen it yet, it comes highly recommended.
