    The first overseas location work was not until 1974, when producer Susi Hush elected to send the women of Weatherfield on a package holiday to Majorca. The two-episode shoot was not idyllic for the actresses: the production team were housed in a 5* hotel, the cast in a 2* alongside genuine holidaymakers who became unhappy at being shooed away from the pool by director Quentin Lawrence to accommodate his camera crew. Adding insult to injury, make-up was applied at 6am in a room adjacent to an open sewer.
