Back in the mid 1980s UK this children's drama was definitely different to to usual tat that came from Australia(i.e. Return to Eden, S&D and The Young Doctors). The show's subjects were kids in care that resided in a compound known as Westmere(Melbourne) where they often encountered hostility from the local community especially when attending school. The beauty of this show was that it always showed the story from a kid's perspective as their fate was often at the fault of their elders, be it the parents or the authorities. I also remember some of its stars(Vikki Blanche, Linda Hartley, Maxine Klibingaitis & Jenny Young) went on to appear in Neighbours. The theme by Lothar & the giants was particularly memorable too.
