Coronation Street's Ken Barlow (he also answers to William Roache, and whatever spiritual moniker he's been given by his lifestyle coach), learns about his family's entrepreneurial past. He discovers the cafe his grandmother Zillah Waddicor ran on the site of Alton Towers in the 1920s and 30s was a far more ambitious business than he had been led to believe, and learns about the challenges she faced in her personal and professional lives. He also delves into the story of his great-grandfather James, a trader who dealt in some highly unusual wares in late 19th-century Blackpool.
