5 Things Coronation Street Is

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog November 2017, reposted to this blog with permission.)

Coronation Street is our cultural heritage, our television history
Please keep it relevant to those of us who have been watching, and supporting it, for most of our lives.

Coronation Street is a matriachal soap
Where are the strong females these days?

Coronation Street is funny and warm
Please bring back the humour.

Coronation Street is tea and toast by the fire on a winter's evening. 
Please make it cosy again

Coronation Street is a soap - for then, now and forever
It's a soap, a show that needs to move on and reinvent itself, I understand that. Within the commercial world of ITV, Coronation Street is a product to be sold to attract advertisers to the commercial channel. I understand that too.

But - Then, now and forever?
ITV recently coined this phrase themselves - so please don't let their actions speak louder than their words.
