Trivia

Episode 4946, broadcast on Friday, December 8, 2000, was a special double-length 40th Anniversary one. It followed a rescreening of the first edition, and was similarly transmitted live. As noted above, it incorporated a cameo (seen on a television) by the Prince of Wales, who was purportedly visiting Weatherfield. Ten years later, sixty-five actors and a three hundred-strong crew produced the hour-long 50th Anniversary edition on December 9, 2010 (episode 7487), which again went out live, to an audience of fourteen million viewers.

Goofs

In the episode, 22/11/2004, (where Dev's corner shops are blown up by Maya) Dev drives his Saab to the shop which is about to be blown up, he parks the car directly outside the shop. Also parked directly outside the shop is another car. As the shop blows up, the camera changes angle to show the blast and Dev's car has somehow disappeared, just leaving the other car in shot.

Coronation Street Fantastic!
6 September 2004 | by harrybahlsSee all my reviews

I love Coronation street and have been watching it forever..I would watch it with me mam if I stayed home from school due to illness.

I remember when I first started watching, it was in black and white. I miss the old characters like Ena Sharples and Uncle Albert.

I do not care for the Sarah storyline much. Maybe it's because I don't like Sarah. Her mother, Gail, is an old shrew.

I love Blanche Hunt, doesn't everyone have a Blanche Hunt in their neighborhoods?

And lovely Rita...she's my very favourite. What a brilliant actress and a shining star.

I love when Les Battersby refers to Norris as "Doris"!

I hope this show runs for another 42 years so I can watch it when I'm in the IL' nursing home.
