    I've just noticed a 'P' on screen whenever Corry titles are on - does anyone know what it means - we've just started watching on Freeview HD if this has any bearing on it all??

    Product placement, they are being paid to advertise something within the show, so if you notice someone randomly staring at the camera holding a branded bottle of drink or something similar, possibly more subtle, that'll be it.

    Nothing to do with HD. Any programme with product placement has to show this. In Coronation Street the corner shop now has a Nationwide cash machine.
