Coronation Street TV Series Video
In the autumn of 1960 a young script writer named Tony Warren sat at a typewriter and within twenty-four hours
had produced the first episode of a TV Series called Florizel Street. It featured the everyday lives of a series of
ordinary folk - the superior landlady, the cantankerous old dear, the retired soldier, the angry young man and the
good time girl down the street.
On 9th December 1960, after a name change, the first episode of Coronation Street was broadcast. It was an
instant hit. In fact, it was so popular that the series never came off air. Over 6000 episodes after its first
transmission, Coronation Street has become a national treasure. After over50 years, it still continues to captivate
more people than anything else on television.
A number of Coronation Street Video's featuring landmark episodes right from the beginning in 1960 through to
feature length 'movies', have been released over the years. With many episodes unseen since their original
broadcast, these releases are an opportunity to revisit old friends and relive some classic moments
