The U.K.'s longest-running television soap, Coronation Street focuses on the everyday lives of working class people in Manchester, England.
Legendarily, Creator Tony Warren had to rename the series from its original title "Florizel Street", which was considered to sound like a disinfectant. Denis Forman has recalled that at least two members of Granada's board were dead-set against the show, considering it a "disagreeable" and "downmarket" concept. Company co-Founder Sidney Bernstein was also reluctant to commit to the idea. His brother Cecil, with Forman, pushed for the greenlight.
Oh, what a lovely parrot!
