  • Trivia

    • The very first episode of Coronation Street was broadcast live from Studio 2 at Granada studios in Manchester at 7pm on Friday 9th December, 1960. It aired to all the existing regions on the 5-year-old ITV network with the exception of Tyne Tees TV in the North East of England (who started transmission with episode 14 on Wednesday 25th January 1961) and ATV Midlands (who started with episode 25 on Monday 6th March 1961 when the programme was fully networked for the first time). It should however be noted that there were several ITV stations that had not yet started broadcasting - Westward, Border, Grampian, Channel TV and Wales TV. Within a year, the programme was No 1 in the UK charts and reaching an international audience.
