It’s sad that it’s ending. I used to love it as a kid, lots of memorable characters (but probably awful if I watched it back). 

I used to like Sons and Daughters as well but never got into Home And Away.

And, for those of you of a certain age who may have been off school with an illness that convinced a parent that a day on the sofa was the best plan...

With Neighbours, Home and Away, The Sullivans and Sons and Daughters, Australian television executives probably did more to keep a generation of kids accepting of going to school than any teachers did.

They did produce some shite telly.

Was almost a welcome relief when the test card came on.

That is a blast from the past that one. I just remember the theme tune as my nan used to watch it. No idea how long the UK had it after it was shown in Australia, but this would have been late 80's / early 90's. Whether they were re-runs or when we just had them here. 

Went years and years without hearing the theme until Peter Kay's Max and Paddy Road to nowhere show when they had a TV theme round on CD driving around. They were all singing the tune and Max's mate yells out the answer trying to get the point 😂😂😂

I just remembered it as being a time the telly went off.

Hope it placed you in a moment in time and provoked memories.

Natalie imbrulglia too. That was the cherry on top. 

Notice Jason and Kylie were never in shot with guy Pearce. They were just out of shot when they did wider views. Guessing schedules meant they couldn't do the same day. 

Not gonna lie, just fast forwarded through most of it.

Sorry to break the sad news to you mate you have lived a sheltered life. Neighbours is not real. Around my place neighbours bring beer around at about 10.00am on a Saturday morning and we then fire up the barbie.

The TV show was actually filmed in a suburb about 20 minutes east of Melbourne and is always a major attraction to pomms visiting OZ.
