Via the Corrie Blog, and originally mentioned on Flaming Nora’s blog, I found a new site for things related to the street: Back on the Street explores the show as it existed back in the 1960’s, 1970’s, and 1980’s in all its “Video for Interior Shots/Film for Exterior Shots” glory.
The blog’s author, Andy, uses newspaper clippings and his own commentary to discuss the major storylines of the past. The latest post details Deirdre’s 1983 fling with Mike Baldwin. From what I could gather, the fling amounted to, at the time, a make-out session on the chesterfield. Still, there was concern that Corrie was getting too graphic. Interesting how times change.
The blog is a lot of fun and provides some historical context for storylines today.
