Storyline

Drama examining the lives of residents of a Sydney apartment block. Initial storylines focused on adultery, drug use, frigidity, rape, gossip, homosexuality, marriage problems, racism. The building's ground floor delicatessen run by Hungarian Jew Aldo Godolfus and the nearby laundrette provided central meeting places for characters. Original residents included busty blonde virgin Bev Houghton who fell in love with her neighbour, homosexual lawyer Don Finlayson. Don's flatmate lover was Bruce Taylor, a photographer who was secretly being kept financially by his employer, the bitchy and sardonic Maggie Cameron. Friendly Vera Collins read tarot cards for a living; her husband had deserted her and she would be perpetually unlucky in love. In flat 8 lived immigrants from Lancashire, whining Alf Sutcliffe and his salt of the earth wife Lucy, who worked in the laundrette. Interfering, malaproping gossip Dorrie Evans was the building's self-appointed "conserge"; her husband was the more ... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Music: "Paperboy, theme from 'Number 96'" by Steve Grey (uncredited in TV series) was used over the closing credits, as a reprise of the opening and closing credits of the 1974 feature film. Tommy Tycho, who composed new music for use within the film, is often mistakenly credited as the composer of "Paperboy". See more »

Will seem dated but a good escape-forerunner of Soap
29 May 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

In the 70's there were some good Australian TV soaps made that reflected a changing society especially when it came to relationships. Or perhaps it was just that people were able to show for real what had been happening previously but never shown on conservative 1960's TV.

No 96 will stand the test of time because gave viewers first full frontal (I think) seen by Abigail.

It will seem a bit cheap and nasty but you must remember that they would make at least 1-2 one hour episodes per week over a 40 week season.

I think the late 1970's series-SOAP with Billy Crystal is similar in that it mentions society changes like gays and infidelity-in a campish , funny way.
