If you've been enjoying listening to our journey through 60 years of Corrie, you'll be pleased to hear that our bonus material for this week's podcast is a look back at the first half of the 1970s. This period saw the debuts of characters who'd go onto be Coronation Street icons including Deirdre and Blanche, introduced Corrie viewers to the Kabin, and saw the show film abroad for the first time as the ladies of the Street jetted of to Majorca. We laughed at the continued capers of the Ogdens, gasped at the intense Joe Donneli saga and said a fond farewell to the likes of Val and Irma. Corrie in the 1970s certainly felt like a different place to the cosy Street of the sixties at times, but there was certainly still a lot to love!
