Coronation Street: 60th Anniversary (2 Dec 2020)

Tracy Brabin: It was pressure from this place that changed that law and a subsequent “Panorama” programme that unearthed all these cases of women who were sent straight to prison for non-payment. So I would like to thank the predecessors of MPs in here who saved so many women from experiencing that.

Coronation Street: 60th Anniversary (2 Dec 2020)

Tracy Brabin: What an enormous pleasure it is to be able to discuss the much-loved British institution of “Coronation Street”, as it reaches the grand old age of 60 and is still going strong.

Looking at fictional characters, we wonder, “What would I think if I was that person?” Storytelling has huge power to change people’s mind. If my history of soaps is correct, the first...

Coronation Street: 60th Anniversary (2 Dec 2020)

Tracy Brabin: I could not agree more, and I will go on to talk about how creativity and the creative industries can be a powerhouse and an engine of regeneration in our communities in the north.

Coronavirus Vaccine (2 Dec 2020)

Tracy Brabin: I add my thanks to the scientists and to the volunteers who put their own health at risk so that we could beat this pandemic.
