Coronation Street is the world's longest-running TV soap-opera and a hugely popular national institution. From the moment the very first episode flickered onto our screens on 9 December 1960, the very heart of the show has always been the Rovers Return public house. It may just be a backstreet boozer, but TV's most famous pub has been at the centre of the action week in week out for the last 53 years. As longest-serving barmaid Betty once sagely noted: 'If you're not being talked about in this pub, you're not worth serving', and under the watchful eye of legendary landladies such as Annie Walker, Bet Lynch and Liz McDonald, the Rovers has witnessed everything from births, deaths, brawls and break-ups, to weddings, wakes and even its own ghost. But despite any drama that may be about to unfold, regulars are guaranteed a warm welcome, a shoulder to cry on and more often than not the waft of a hearty hotpot seeping through from the kitchen out back. This year proved to be the Rovers' most explosive to date when the pub was ripped apart by a devastating blaze, rocking the lives of the residents forever. As the boozer was gradually restored to its former glory, it hit home to the regulars just how much the heart of their community really meant to them... Including exclusive access to the Coronation Street archives, THE ROVERS RETURN STORY celebrates over five decades of tears and laughter inside Weatherfield's iconic watering hole. It's the book no fan would want to be without.

It has since been shown in all regions of ITV almost throughout its existence. Since first being aired, it has been one of the most financially lucrative programmes on commercial television, underpinning the success of its broadcaster ITV and its franchise Granada Television. On 17 September 2010, it became the world's longest-running TV soap opera currently in production.

From Denver to Delhi, Moscow to Manchester, audiences eagerly await the next episode of As the World Turns, The Rich Also Weep or Eastenders. But the popularity of soap operas in Britain and the US pales in comparison to the role that they play in media cultures in other parts of the world. To Be Continued... investigates both the cultural specificity of television soap operas and their reception in other cultures, covering soap production and soap watching in the U.S., Asia, Europe, Australia and Latin America. The contributors consider the nature of soap as a media text, the history of the serial narrative as a form, and the role of the soap opera in the development of feminist media criticism.

A wonderful Christmas gift full of nostalgia and charm, perfect for fans of Coronation Street and readers who love Fiction set in Wartime. Elsie Grimshaw lives in one of the worst streets in Weatherfield and is desperate to escape from life at home with a brutal father and the drudgery of working at the local mill. Grabbing at the slim chances that come her way, Elsie emerges from the heartbreak of first love and her marriage to bad boy, Arnold Tanner at only sixteen years old, if not much older, then certainly wiser. Going under her married name of Elsie Tanner, she and Arnold move in to No.11 Coronation Street in 1939 as war breaks out. Her cheeky self-confidence immediately puts her at loggerheads with local busy-body Ena Sharples and Annie Walker, landlady of the Rovers Return. As Christmas approaches, the residents of Coronation Street must put their petty squabbles aside if they are to survive the worst that Hitler's Luftwaffe can throw at them. And as the Manchester Blitz grips their home town of Weatherfield, the residents must pull together to make this a Christmas to remember - for all of the right reasons...

Thinking Northern offers new approaches to the processes of identity formation which are taking place in the diverse fields of cultural, economic and social activity in contemporary Britain. The essays collected in this volume discuss the changing physiognomy of Northern England and provide a mosaic of recent thought and new critical thinking about the textures of regional identity in Britain. Looking at the historical origin of Northern identities and at current attitudes to them, the book explores the way received mental images about the North are re-deployed and re-contained in the ever-changing socio-cultural set-up of society in Northern England. The contributors address representation of Northernness in such diverse fields as the music scene, multicultural spaces, the heritage industries, new architecture, the arts, literature and film.

In Part I, 'Coronation Street at War', it is September 1939 and 16 year-old Elsie Tanner walks into Coronation Street. Newly married, pregnant and full of hopes and dreams, she has little idea of the difficult times ahead. But within days her husband has enlisted, leaving his teenage bride to face the neighbours alone: snotty Annie Walker; shy Esther Hayes; cocky Jim Todd and Ena Sharples. With their menfolk overseas, the women of Coronation Street are forced to make do, supporting each other through the tragedies of the War. In Part II 'The Way to Victory' the German bombing continues, the Yanks have been posted overseas and, for Elsie Tanner, the world seems to be a colourless place of dreary munitions work and the restrictions of rationing...But all this is about to change as the end of the war draws nearer. Coronation Street: The War Years Saga tells the story of the enduring resilience of the plucky residents of Weatherfield, as they struggle through hardship, absent sweethearts and loss, to emerge as the more mature characters that formed the backbone of the longest-running serial drama. on TV.

From the time when Rovers Return landlady Annie Walker first cast a disapproving glance at Ena Sharples gossiping with Minnie Caldwell to the traumas caused by the tangled love lives of the Websters or the McDonalds, viewers have been gripped by the lives of those who live in one street in the northern town of Weatherfield. Just like any other street in the country, the locals living there have changed dramatically over the years since the rest of Britain first paid the area a visit in 1960. There have been many marriages, births, and deaths, with characters such as Elsie Tanner, Hilda Ogden, Alf Roberts, or Mike Baldwin fading into the past as new faces move into the street. The one man who has remained ever since we first saw him there all those years ago is, of course, Ken Barlow. Despite the changing nature of its residents and the many disasters and tragedies that have befallen them, one thing in the street always remains the same. Defying all the dark intrigue and neighborhood squabbles, the people who live there maintain a close-knit community, supporting each other through the tough times and celebrating the good times. This is the complete story of Coronation Street.
