For 23 years the late Bryan Mosley played Alf Roberts in Coronation Street. He replaced an actor who was so drunk he couldn't learn his lines. He was the third longest-running actor in the Street and had 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 story of forty years in the profession. As a practising Roman Catholic and formerly a Methodist, Bryan had strong and sometimes controversial beliefs. In Street Life he shared what he discovered about fame, fortune and faith.
