Coronation Street

S01E01 - Fri 9 Dec, 1960

There's a new arrival in Coronation Street: Florrie Lindley, who is taking over the Corner Shop. Her first day on the job is not without incident as she runs into the local busy-body Ena Sharples. Meanwhile, Elsie Tanner is on at her son, Dennis, to get some work but he reminds her that it's not easy for someone who's just got out of prison. Later, there's a misunderstanding when Elsie accuses Dennis of taking money from her purse when in fact it was her daughter Linda. Also, Linda tells Elsie that she's leaving her husband. Elsie says she'll believe it when she sees it! At number 3, there's unrest at the Barlow's. Young Kenneth Barlow has an argument with his father, Frank, when he announces that he's met a girl and he's taking her to the Imperial Hotel. Frank argues that Ken has all but forgotten his working class roots.
