    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.
