'Celebrating 60 years since the show's creation, this book is an exhaustive, compelling and entertaining history packed full of features and long forgotten imagery. It takes you through every year in a unique timeline that highlights key plot lines, significant production events, together with an impressive amount of photography. You'll discover features on characters, famous actors, royal visits, births, deaths, marriages and murders, together with interviews with key actors, producers and production staff.
A special section on the show's creator Tony Warren, shows how the programme evolved from page to screen and is illustrated with rare imagery and artefacts from his own archive. There are even special gatefold pages that open out showing how the set has developed over the years and family trees of the major characters so you can see the complex web of relations for the likes of the Barlows and the Platts.'
