Default What does the 'P' mean on the Coronation St titles?

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.
"How many times I have desired to gather your children as a hen that gathers her chicks and you were not willing! Luke 13:34

"When the day shall come, that we do part," he said softly, and turned to look at me, "if my last words are not 'I love you'--- ye'll ken it was because I didna have time." (Diana Gabaldon- Fiery Cross)
