Did You Know?


The show was initially cancelled after sixteen weeks, as Channel 9's original intention was to continue with either this or network stablemate The Sullivans (1976) (both began transmission during November 1976); however the broadcaster acquiesced to public demand and kept both soaps airing. Delighted, the production team threw a party and make-up artist Patricia Hutchence volunteered her son and his band to provide musical support - consequently a pre-fame Michael Hutchence and INXS performed for the cast and crew at the celebration.

Just purchased the DVD...gosh, it brings it all back...
14 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched this when I was younger, and it left a lasting impression on me. I always remembered the theme tune, which was rather catchy. I just purchased the newly released DVD, which I must say has dated somewhat. The sets look sparse, some of the acting, limited to say the least. But this for me, all adds to the magic of the show! I love it! Any ideas on how I can get the theme tune? Very funky. Recommend the DVD also, 12 episodes and quite good extras! My favourites were Paula Duncan and Gwen Plum, who went onto star in the VERY UNDERATTED Richmond Hill in 1988. It was just funny to see the stars looking younger and less experienced. Another favourite was Peita Toppano, who went onto play Karen Travvers in my Fav Prisoner: Cell Block H
