The Radio Announcer put out a call for Ken Barlow in Saddleworth to go to Ward 8 of Weatherfield General immediately as Albert Tatlock was dangerously ill. The message was delivered at the request of Betty Turpin, as her husband Cyril had been a police constable. In the event, Ken never heard the message and returned to Coronation Street to find the area under police evacuation due to a gas leak. Albert's condition was relayed to him by Ted Loftus.
- The announcer was listed in TV Times but uncredited in the episode.
