Soap Suds: Coronation Street and Crossroads
In this episode we remember soaps in the 70's and in particular Coronation Street and Crossroads. How true to life were Ena Sharples and Hilda Ogden and why has Gail not had much luck with men? We look back at Scouse binman Eddie Yates and marvel at how Rita ran a newsagents by day and was a nightclub singer by night. We're also going back to the flimsy walls and fluffed lines of Crossroads. Meg Richardson was really quite scary and did Paul Henry ever find much work after spending years playing Benny Hawkins?
