|Coronation Street creator Tony Warren|
The very first episode of Corrie aired on December 9th, 1960.
Our blogger Barry (Sunny Jim) captured the first 50 years of Corrie in 50 blog posts, which were then turned into an online book by one of our readers - have a look at it here.
Happy anniversary, Coronation Street!
Have a look at the first Coronation Street episode here and read our blogger Tvor's review of it here.
