Local poet and writer Sean Kelly has been inspired by what we are doing so I thought I would post this up for our parousal!! Will be posting more Producer notes as we go. Soon. xx Here's Sean's ode to Stan and Hilda Ogden - Legends of Corrie....
The Dead That Never Lived - Stan Ogden
And did the Street in Hilda's time
Rule over England's TV screens?
And did those 20 million folk
Watch as the Rovers she did clean?
And did the Woodbine on her lip
Quiver so gently as she sang?
And was her love for her husband Stan
The greatest in all TV land?
(Although he was ignorant, and mildly abusive...)
She'd bring him plates of pie and chips
Bring him his Newton Ridleys mild
And while he drank free daily pints
She bore and rais-ed his four childs
(Tho two were taken into council care)
She ne’er did cease from cleaning work
With curlers always in her hair
'Til she did bury her dear Stan
In England's green and pleasant land
