The only complete guide to Coronation Street.,
By A Customer
This review is from: 40 Years Of "Coronation Street" (Hardcover)
When did Mike Baldwin arrive in Coronation Street? How did Alan Bradley die? How many wives has Ken Barlow had?. All the answers are in '40 years of Coronation Street'.
This book, by Corrie archivist Daran Little, is a celebration of 40 years of britains longest running soap opera.
The main part of the book is a decade-by-decade, year-by-year synopsis of all the major events in coronation street, from 1960 to the present. With a complete list of all the main cast in the year they arrived.
Other sections include a plan of Coronation street, a who's who?, a storyline index, the street's births marriages and deaths, a list of other coronation street books and a list of the spin-offs.
I am really enjoying this book. i wasnt even born until Coronation Street had reached 20 so it is interesting to find out what went on in the early years. For older fans, this is a chance to reminice about the days of Elsie Tanner and Ena Sharples. The book is well layed out and wonderfully designed with hundreds of photographs.
This book is definately worth a read and here's to the next 40 years!
