Granada @ 60

Join us for a special season of retrospectives as we celebrate 60 years of groundbreaking, fearless and creative programming from Manchester’s own Granada TV.

Brainchild of cinema impresarios the Bernsteins, Granada would quickly transcend its Manchester roots and through the ITV network entertain, inform and educate the masses. These Reithian roots, entirely appropriate to the self-styled BBC of the North, are celebrated in this special season that examines Granada’s Children’s TV output, the uncompromising World in Action and the nation’s favourite serial drama, Coronation Street.
