Journey back through 57 years of Coronation Street with our exclusive new promo which recreates iconic scenes in a celebration of Britain’s most popular continuing drama.
The promo depicts iconic scenes from each decade of the Street, showing not only the scenes themselves but also the craft involved in creating the moments we see being filmed.
Some of the scenes were shot on the Coronation Street set whilst classic sets were recreated at Shepperton Studios.
The costumes were created using archive photography and footage while actors were cast to match the original performances and emulate the moments featured.
Tony Pipes, ECD of ITV Creative, said:
"Everyone has a favourite Coronation Street scene, a memorable moment and the chance to recreate some of these was a beautiful adventure."
Sarah Tobias, Head of Marketing and Media at ITV, added:
"Coronation Street is on brilliant form at the moment, so now seemed like the
perfect time to celebrate the soap. We hope viewers love reliving these classic moments as much as we have loved recreating them.’
Kieran Roberts, Executive Producer ofCoronation Street, said:
"We're delighted to have such a brilliant marketing campaign celebrating Coronation Street's past, present and future. These promos are simply stunning and I'm sure viewers will love them as much as they love Corrie itself."
