With filming now underway for the Coronation Street documentary on BBC4, the Mirror have a profile on the woman behind Elsie Tanner, actress Pat Phoenix. It's a good piece, a nice little read with some historic Corrie snippets. They just don't make women like that anymore... more's the pity.
You can now see the end result of the "documentary". The Road to Coronation Street is now available in Canada on DVD. I highly recommend it.
