- This episode is notable for the first filming in the yard on Grape Street behind the Granada Television studios, the future home of the programme's outdoor set. The Vestry exterior set was erected and bulldozed down before the film cameras. Over the next few months, the Maisonettes were built on the spot where filming had taken place and in Episode 770 (1st May 1968) the first building on the terraced side of the street was shown when the Corner Shop was seen in its outdoor setting for the first time.
- This episode was repeated by Granada on Wednesday 28th December 1983 at 10.20pm as a tribute to Violet Carson who had died two days previously. This repeat gained 6,913,000 viewers.
