The fascinating story of the late Coronation Street star, Alf Roberts. Alf was the popular, if gruff, large man with the pork pie hat. One-time owner of the grocer shop, Alf was also the local mayor. For twenty three years Bryan Mosley played Alf Roberts in Britain's most successful soap. He replaced an actor who was so drunk he couldn't learn his lines. In contrast Bryan was squeaky clean and a shining example of a Christian gentleman as much loved on the set as he was by the nation. Bryan Mosley was the third longest running actor in the Street and there is a wealth of stories to tell about the early days, the actors, the management and the viewers he met. From his days selling books door to door, through his agonies turning professional, to the excitement of national fame, this is a riveting story of forty years in the profession. As a practising Roman Catholic and formerly a Methodist, he had strong and sometimes controversial beliefs. Bryan Mosley had a colourful life and in Street Life he shared what he has discovered about fame, fortune and faith. Shortly after retiring from Coronation Street, Bryan died early in 1999.
