    As of 2013, only one member of the original cast from the debut episode remains: William Roache, who has played Ken Barlow since December 1960. William Roache is the longest-serving actor in the history of television serials. The previous record-holder was Don Hastings, who played Bob Hughes on the American soap "As the World Turns" (1956) from October 1960, bettering Roache's achievement by two months. He lost his record when that series ended in September 2010.

    Episode 4946, broadcast on Friday 8th December 2000, was a special double-length 40th anniversary one. It followed a rescreening of the very first edition and was similarly transmitted live. As noted above, it incorporated a cameo (seen on a TV) by the Prince of Wales, who was purportedly visiting Weatherfield. Ten years later 65 actors and a 300-strong crew produced the hour-long 50th anniversary edition on 9th December 2010 (episode 7487) which again went out live, to an audience of 14 million viewers.

    The show was off the air for ten weeks when an ITV strike commenced on 10th August 1979. On its return on ITV's comeback night of 24th October, Julie Goodyear and Peter Adamson provided a brief pre-shot catch-up from the cobbles to remind viewers of the 'current' storylines. William Roache similarly gave a short on-screen tribute when co-star Jack Howarth died.
