No episode was shown on Wednesday 8th March, 1961 due to a lightning strike by thirty-two electricians at Granada Television belonging to the Electrical Trades Union in support of a pay claim. The strike began at 4.00pm on the 8th and lasted just five hours, during which time viewers in the North of England received programmes from Associated Rediffusion in London and Granada programmes such as Coronation Street were postponed. This was the episode which had originally been due to be shown on the 8th and reference books such as Daran Little's 40 Years of Coronation Street still state that Joan Walker was married on 8th March, 1961. As a result of the episode being shown on a Monday instead of the scheduled Wednesday, the end credits were remade (with a rather obvious jump in the videotape) to show a caption reading "Next Episode: Wednesday 7.30pm".
Jack Walker states that he and Annie have been married for twenty-six years. In October the following year, the Walkers celebrate their Silver anniversary, and all future references date their marriage to 1937.
