Corrie in crisis

No, not another tabloid revelation or ratings battle. This crisis came forty years ago, and is remembered by John Finch in an article on the Writers' Guild website.

It's a nice insight into the characters behind the early days of Britain's favaourite soap.
Crisis point was reached when we were down to not much more than half-a-dozen or so actors. There was no one to pull a pint in The Rovers Return. Pints were slid across the bar by a studio hand working off camera!
