Sixpenny Corner is historically important as Britain's first daily TV soap opera. The series' 15-minute episodes revolved around the Nortons, a newlywed couple played by Howard Pays and Patricia Norton. Mr. Norton (aka Bill) owned a small garage in the town of Springwood; Mrs. Norton (aka Sally) sat around, worried a lot, and consumed vast quantities of tea. Produced through the facilities of Associated Redifussion, Sixpenny Corner lacked the staying power of such successors as Coronation Street, surviving but a single season after its 1955 debut.
