This week's hot weather won't help them get good ratings.


I don't think being up against 4 football matches would have been all that helpful last night either.

I'm doing some Corrie catch-up and I've noticed on a recent episode, Dev is selling cans of beer that are most likely out of date . . .

Can you spot them ... ?
"The Not-So-Late-Show with Greg Mitchell" will hopefully return in some form, somewhere soon.
Unlikely to be on Roch Valley Radio though.

Stay tuned . . .

Are they reusing scenes from months ago in new episodes? Seb's storyline seems to be a repeat. Confused

I think next week is the final week of episodes filmed entirely pre-lockdown, then we have 3 weeks' worth of episodes that will be a mix of scenes filmed pre-and post lockdown.

Is it the Stella on the top shelf with the logo half way down rather than at the top?

I see he’s selling Stallion as well. I didn’t know he was also a pharmacy.

Regarding The Road to Coronation Street, the actor who played Tony Warren and his portrayal was very similar to Rob Mallard’s Daniel Osbourne don’t you think?

Also quite strange to see “ITV Studios for BBC” on a show on ITV. I can’t believe it’s been 10 years since it was on BBC Four

I’m intrigued as to what the thought process was by ITV to commission it for the BBC in the first place.

A drama that good with so many famous names to it would have surely benefited to premiere on ITV1 at the time, rather than be shown on BBC Four.

I think the BBC commissioned the show originally (Daran Little who wrote it was at EE at the time) and then ITV Studios picked up the contract to make it to order but it was already set for BBC Four so they couldn't take it for ITV even if they wanted too - which is quite common.

That would be a very unusual way of commissioning it and that's not a common way of doing it at all. The most likely scenario, as discussed previously, is the idea would have been pitched to the BBC by ITV Studios, no doubt taking it to them after having the idea rejected by ITV1.

I thoroughly enjoyed watching The Road to Coronation Street even though I have seen it several times since 2010 and have it on DVD.

It was a shame the announcer spoke over the photos on the closing credits - they could have at least waited for the scrolling crew credits before speaking and promoting other shows!!

It was odd seeing an ITV production for BBC when it was being shown on ITV. I guess as BBC commissioned the drama there was a requirement to have BBC on the endcap - they could have easily just had an endcap with An ITV studios production but there was probably a requirement for BBC to be included on any subsequent repeats on any channel.

It’s standard practice on the BBC for the end cap to say ‘for BBC’ and I think you thinking too deeply into it regarding a ‘requirement’ to leave it, more that they didn’t feel the need or incur the time and money to edit it. It still refered to ‘50 years later it’s still going strong’ at the end as well.

I also note there were very few ad breaks, the first part was about 35 minutes.
