The Road to Coronation Street cover


The Road to Coronation Street is the dramatized story of how Coronation Street, Britain’s best-loved series, was created – and how it almost never made it on air. Set in Manchester’s Granada TV Studios circa 1960, passionate young scriptwriter Tony Warren had a vision of bringing to life a program about real people and everyday situations on the streets of working-class Manchester. Portraying Tony’s boardroom battles to convince network executives that his idea for a dramatic series would be both popular and commercially successful – and the gamble executives took to bring this show to the screen – this film marks the milestone 50 Year Anniversary of Coronation Street.
