Trivia

Yorkshire born session musician Ronnie Hunt performed the solo in the title music. He was paid six pounds. After many takes, Composer Eric Spear was unsatisfied by the recording takes. Ronnie Hunt asked him what the music was for, where was the program was set. Once he knew, he created the sound by using a mute on his trumpet, to create a cornet "Northern" brass band sound.

28 February 2008 | by kiwi43See all my reviews

I have watched this, irregularly for the first ten years , but for the last 30 years have rarely missed an episode. It is part of Tuesdays & Thursdays. I usually have a crossword or sudoku at the same time, but it is something to look forward to. Nobody phones at that time.

I admit that Coronation Street does vary in quality from time to time. There are far more unlikeable characters now - Charlie, Tracy, Cilla and David for example, & some of the story lines drag on and on, but there are so many moments of brilliant dialogue, such as Rita's put downs of Norris, and some of the discussion between Kirk & the lovely Fizz. We are a year behind in New Zealand but it doesn't seem to matter if you read of what's happening in English magazines or the Internet. Here's to another 30 years!
