Z Cars

Believe it or not, popular Merseyside TV series Z Cars started life on a scriptwriter’s sickbed. Creator Troy Kennedy Martin was so bored when he was laid up with mumps that he tuned into police messages on his radio to pass the time. It gave him the idea for the gritty northern police drama that ran from January 1962 to September 1978.

Then and Now

Oxford Street

Welcome to Then and Now, where each week we compare images of Manchester streets, landmarks and buildings from bygone days with how they look now.

This week our image shows Oldham Street in 1900. There’s a real hustle and bustle about the place as people flock to its shops and stores.

Pedestrians avoid the trams as they carefully make their way over the tracks and cobbles in the middle of the busy thoroughfare.

It truly is a little slice of Manchester history!
10th November 1969: Herman’s Hermits’ manager Harvey Lisberg marries actress Carol Levy at the bride’s grandparents’ home in Manchester.
Wishing them well were Peter Noone, lead singer of Herman’s Hermits, and his wife Mireille.

10cc were from Prestwich.. they recorded in Stockport.

Loved Peter Noone! Saw him last year in Southamptons Mayflower theatre in a 60's show . Just the same as ever maybe a little bit more cuddlier!

They used to play at the Beachcomber in Bolton in the early 60's. Happy Days.

My cousins wife Janet Howarth had a relative in the Hermit's.

I remember that wedding.... i knew the Lisberg family. !!
