CBC news and schedule changes for Canadian fans

There's great news for Canadian Corrie fans!

CBC is going to air the ITV  special, a tribute to Jean Alexander and Hilda Ogden. The commemorative documentary episode will go out as part of CBC's festive schedule.  It will include accolades from many of the Coronation Street cast.

Hilda Ogden's Last Ta-Ra: A Tribute to Jean Alexander will air on CBC on Wednesday, December 28 at 8 p.m. following a regular broadcast of Coronation Street. (8:30 p.m. in Newfoundland).

(Don't forget, ITV will air Hilda Ogden's Last Ta Ra on December 20)

The Sunday omnibus will air at the normal 8 a.m. time except for Winnipeg/Regina and Vancouver when it will air at 7 a.m.
Week of December 26:
Coronation Street will air for one hour on Monday December 26 at 7 p.m.
The rest of the week as normal (meaning there will be an extra episode this week, reflected in the omnibus on January 1, airing at the normal 8 a.m. time)
