Friends and colleagues of Coronation Street star Bill Tarmey, who died last month, pay tribute to his 31 years on the soap playing the popular character Jack Duckworth. Stepping into the role in 1979, Tarmey went on to establish Jack as the work-shy, womanising, pigeon-fancier known to millions, before retiring from the show in 2010 in a moving scene which saw the return of his beloved on-screen wife Vera (Liz Dawn). To mark the end of an era, Julie Goodyear, William Roache, Katherine Kelly, Alan Halsall and Liz Dawn are seen remembering Jack's best moments in Weatherfield. Narrated by John Thomson.
