The show that lifts the lid on advertising, spin and marketing. Join host Wil Anderson, stalwarts Todd Sampson and Russel Howcroft and other advertising industry experts to unpick the ways we're all bought and sold.
Slapstick mockumentary about an enthusiastic Aussie wildlife expert, Russell Coight, whose haphazard and inept adventuring style ensures that he is a danger to anything and anyone he meets, not to mention himself.
Of the seventeen original cast members (one still remains today), all but four have reprised their roles on the show since their initial departures. All have reappeared at least twice, except for three (Ailsa, Bobby, and Tom) who came back as "ghosts" after their characters were killed-off. The original characters who have not returned, are Neville McPhee and Lynn Davenport, as well as Justine Clarke as Roo Stewart (the character returned twenty years later, played now by Georgie Parker), and Vanessa Downing, who played Pippa (the role was re-cast after her departure, and her successor has reappeared as the character, following her own departure, since). Neville McPhee was killed-off off-screen in 2000. His portrayer, Frank Lloyd, passed away in 1995, and the decision was made not to re-cast him. The producers attempted to bring back Helena Bozich (Lynn) several times starting in 2000, but they have never been able to locate her. See more »
Throughout the years, numerous characters have referred to "the city" (meaning Sydney) as being either "up" or "down" from Summer Bay. The general consensus, however, is that Summer Bay is north of Sydney (approximately 100km away), as is the real-life filming location. See more »
Home and Away is definitely my favorite TV show. There are not many shows made that compares to this one. It´s a great show with interesting storylines, good actors and a good script. There is not much more to add, really...
Home and Away is definitely the best Australian show ever made, and even counting shows from all countries, it´s still one of the very best. I can definitely recommend you all to watch this.
Since I live in Scandinavia, we are a couple of years behind Australia in the airings so I haven´t seen the last couple of years of the Australian productions, plus that the stations here skipped a number of episodes in the beginning, but the 600 or so episodes that I have seen has been great!
