(This post was originally posted by me on the Coronation Street Blog and The State of the Street in December, 2010.)
It started out that I was going to post a blog article and link to some of the many news pieces out today in celebration of Coronation Street's anniversary. I ended up writing about my own feelings about Corrie and it grew and grew until I ended up saving it over on my State of the Street blog here.
The links? Oh yes...
BBC has an interview with Jean Alexander remembering her career and her time as Hilda Ogden.
Ian Wylie has a really nice interview with Tony Warren.
The Telegraph has an A to Z of Coronation Street
And then there's this, bloody brilliant, comparison timeline between the early years of Coronation Street and the events on the popular American drama Mad Men over on The Retronaut.. Click on the photo, it'll open up small but there's an "expand" clicky thing to make it large so you can read it.
