The soap opera Coronation Street was first broadcast on ITV on December 9th 1960. During its early years all ‘exterior’ street scenes were filmed on a sound stage, which used three-quarter-sized wooden houses. In 1982 a full street was built from reclaimed Salford brick at Granada Studios in Manchester.
