FAREWELL HILDA OGDEN

This England - - Nelson's Column -

Whenit be­gan in 1960 Corona­tion Street was full of won­der­ful char­ac­ters who acted out be­liev­able scripts with­out the need for bad lan­guage or gra­tu­itous vi­o­lence and nas­ti­ness now so preva­lent. The Hilda Ogden So­ci­ety was formed by Rus­sell Harty, John Bet­je­man, Lau­rence Olivier and Michael Parkin­son but the ac­tress who de­picted her, Jean Alexan­der, died re­cently, aged 90. In real life she was more quiet and re­served. RIP!
