Conversation Street

An unofficial podcast for the long-running British soap, Coronation Street.

Feature Discussion: 1965-1969 - Episode 412

April 4th, 2020

Our extra content for Episode 412 of the podcast is a review of the second half of our 1960s Corrie box set. 1965 to 1969 saw some big changes to the Street, including the introduction of an outdoor set and the construction of the maisonettes opposite the terraced houses. It was also the period where Betty Turpin and Bet Lynch made their debuts, and big stunts like the train crashing through the viaduct and the collapse of Number 7 kept viewers hooked. In this discussion, we go over stories we enjoyed, characters that made the biggest impression, and our thoughts on what the box set can teach us about life in the 60s.
