I was in Coronation Street more than twenty-five years ago. I played one of Ken Barlow's girl friends before he married Valerie. I was some sort of ban-the-bomb marcher. I remember I carried a placard. The unexpurgated version of Lady Chatterley's Lover had just been published -- is this the sort of book you would allow your wife or servant to peruse? -- and Ivan Beavis, who played Lucille's Dad, read out all the naughty bits during breaks in rehearsals.
