Coronation Street

   

 

Welcome to the world of Weatherfield

This is the sister site of EMMERDALE FARM - The Great British Soap (www.emmerdale.org)

Coronation Street was created by Tony Warren

The series is currently produced by Steve Frost. The executive producer is Kieran Roberts. It is a Granada Television production for ITV1.

This site is a small tribute to Coronation Street

Set in the fictitious Weatherfield, at the heart of the under belly of Salford, Greater Manchester.Coronation Street began on the 9th December 1960.  Over forty years later and over 5,800 episodes on, this serial is still going. It currently airs 5 times a week, usually 30 minutes in length - one episode Sundays, two episodes Mondays, one episode Wednesdays and one episode Fridays. More and more a 6th episode is being added with either a double helping on Fridays or a triple helping on Mondays.

Coronation Street is the UK's longest running TV serial. However it is not the UK's longest running Drama serial (soap), that honour belongs to The Archers - A radio serial that began in 1951.

Coronation Street began as a twice weekly programmel. Until 1989 it was shown generally Mondays and Wednesdays. Since 1989, the series became thrice weekly with an additional episode airing on Fridays. In 1996 the output was inreased to 4 episodes a week (Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays). Gradually and particularly from around 2001, extra special episodes were added and in 2002 a fifth episode was added on a regular basis.
