Trivia

The first overseas location work was not until 1974, when producer Susi Hush elected to send the women of Weatherfield on a package holiday to Majorca. The two-episode shoot was not idyllic for the actresses: the production team were housed in a five-star hotel, the cast in a two-star alongside genuine holidaymakers who became unhappy at being shooed away from the pool by director Quentin Lawrence to accommodate his camera crew. Adding insult to injury, make-up was applied at 6 a.m. in a room adjacent to an open sewer. See more »

British TV at it's Best
9 August 2003 | by EJNutzSee all my reviews

If you want to see British TV at it's best then look no further, This is a high class soap opera which has won many awards, The performances in this show sometimes outshine those that have won Oscars. The premise of the series is the following of lives in an old terraced street in Manchester. Each resident is different, it would be boring if they were. The Street is famous for it's comic humour, in the midst of a dramatic scene you are always guaranteed a laugh. It is a must see programme. It is the top rated programme in the UK.
