Watch Coronation Street 2012

Coronation Street is a British television soap opera that first saw the light of day on on 9 December 1960. It began on the newly formed Granada Television before quickly being syndicated by other ITV networks. The working title of the show was "Florizel Street" but was changed to Coronation Street when a member of the production team suggested that "Florizel" sounded like the name of a disinfectant. On the occassion of it's 50th birthday in 2010, Coronation Street was officially given the title of the world's longest running soap opera by the Guinness World Records book.

The show revolves around the lives of the residents of Coronation Street, a fictional street in the fictional town of Weatherfield, Greater Manchester. Various establishments, pivotal to the plot, inhabit the street including, a cafe, a corner shop, a newsagents and a clothes factory. The Rovers Return pub, which serves as a meeting place for the occupants of the street, has been the venue for the majority of the shows most memorable moments.

The show's appeal is largely due to the strength of the writing, casting and of course the quality of the acting. Sometimes, gritty often hilarious "Corrie", as it has become affectionately know by fans, deals with every day issues of working class people. Actors from the show often ascend into modern British folk law. Pat Phoenix (Elsie Tanner), Violet Carson (Ena Sharples) and Jean Alexander (Hilda Ogden) are some of the former characters remembered with affection and reverence by viewers.

The longest serving actor is Ken Barlow (William Roache). Barlow debuted as a teenager in the very first episode and followers of the show have watched his transition from boy, to man, to senior citizen, unfold in real time before their eyes. An episode of Barlow's break up with his then wife Deirdre after she became embroiled in a love affair with Mike Baldwin, then owner of the clothes factory, played to an amazing 20 million viewers.

The actors may come and go, faces may change, but "Corrie" remains as a constant reflection of British society. Although almost 53 years have passed, Coronation Street is as fresh as ever, dealing with often difficult, social issues, tactfully and with just a dash of humour.
