- Pat had star quality. She could reach out to an audience so that they knew her, but also felt she was talking directly to them. As a friend, she was fiercely loyal, frequently impossible, and I wouldn’t have missed knowing her for anything.
The programme then went on to feature clips, some of them extensive, from the following episodes (order as within the tribute):
- Episode 1 (9th December 1960)
- Episode 94 (6th November 1961)
- Episode 95 (8th November 1961)
- Episode 1191 (14th June 1972)
- Episode 1795 (29th March 1978)
- Episode 421 (23rd December 1964)
The tribute carried no credits but it was produced and directed by Coronation Street's then Executive producer Bill Podmore. It gained 11,900,000 viewers and made eighth place in the week’s television charts.
