19 January

After one false alarm, Deirdre Langton goes into labour

19th January 1977: Deirdre and Ray Langton were impatient for the birth of their expected baby and, deeply embarrassed, Deirdre had locked herself away in their Victoria Street flat after one false alarm had led to a trip to Weatherfield General. With a dance being held at the Community Centre, Deirdre persuaded Ray to go and enjoy himself, assuring him that she would be fine. He promised to ring her regularly but a drunk was hogging the payphone and he had no recourse but to walk home. Approaching the house, he saw the ambulance driving away - Tracy Lynette Langton was about to make her entrance on the world...

Alf Roberts in 1991

Alf Roberts was an Independent Councillor in Weatherfield, husband of Audrey Roberts and longtime proprietor of the Corner Shop in Coronation Street. Although he began his working life as a member of the sorting office staff at the GPO, Alf's life changed drastically when his wife Phyllis died of cancer in September 1972 and when he was chosen as Mayor of Weatherfield for a one year term in 1973, at the time intended to be the final person to hold the position. In March 1978, Alf married Corner Shop owner Renee Bradshaw, and the following year left the GPO to help Renee at the shop. In 1980, the Roberts sold the shop in preparation for a move, but when Renee was killed in a car accident, Alf held onto the shop and ran it himself, putting his heart and soul into the place. His proudest achievement was the conversion of the shop into a mini-market in 1985.
