Coronation Street's new set

Featuring contributions from cast and crew filmed over two years, the one-off documentary will see how the set moved from Quay Street to its new location MediaCityUK in Salford. Taking over two years to build, the set was widened and buildings were made bigger for high-definition television.

Timelapse photography will also be used to show how the brand new set came together.

The long-running soap started filming at the new studio earlier in the year while the old set, which has been used since 1982, will be open to the public from April.

Fans will be able to tour the set and explore Stage One, where they'll find some of the soap's best-known sets and walk around the exterior site, including the street's famous cobbles.
