Kaboom and then ???

No, I do not subscribe to the Ezine Tramway Monthly, however I did come across this reference about a disaster in Coronation Street. I expect Coros is on UKTV here but to my knowledge it hasn't been on free tv here for many decades. I remember my parents watching it and they then watched an American show called Peyton Place.

At about one minute into the video there is an explosion and just have a look what happens at about 2.30. You can go to the link above and check out how it was made.

  1. Well, that's one way of changing the set.

  2. We still have Coro St here. And my goodness its followers are rabid. If TV dares to interfere with Coro episodes for any reason, eg the Olympics are on- there are howls of protest!!!

  3. They did a similar thing to Emerdale Farm a few years ago when they had a plane crash on it and wipe out half the cast. Apparently everybody's talking about it over here. I'm not personally, 'cos I don't watch it.

  4. You are too young to remember it hey Ian...aren't you Ian.

    Hehe, Natugesetz. Changing the cast a good bit too I think.

    KN, as in England, there are probably some who have been watching it since it begun. I saw a bit of it in England and it looked pretty trashy.

    That was Lockerbie Brian. You have mixed up reality and fantasy.

  5. Just old enough, though only just I can remember my Grannie watching it in Glasgow in the early 70s.

  6. Ah, forgot you were a Scot. Scottish born, brung up in Melbourne, lived Sydney, living in New York. Not sure I have I have a box to put you into? Perhaps I just pop you into the nice gay guy box. It might be a bit lonely for you though.

  7. Just another Monday night at the Rovers.

    Coronation Street is on UKTV as you guessed. It is also on free to air channel 72 although those screenings are years behind.

    And yes, I am addicted.

  8. I'll guess Rovers is the Coronation Street local.

  9. Dad catches the occasional Coro episode on UKTV and gets a chuckle from it.

  13. You comment wasn't there at all as I posted my last comment, so we must have commenting at the same time. Maybe that caused it. I can delete one of yours but that will just make people wonder what we are on about.

Whenever I wish I was young again, I am sobered by memories of algebra.
