MY5 CELEBRATES 35 YEARS OF HOME AND AWAY
In the lead up to the Aussie soap favourite's 35th anniversary, My5 are celebrating this milestone with an exclusive six-week event, Home and Away Classics: Celebrating 35 Years of the Legendary Soap.
An iconic episode from each of the years Home and Away has been on air will drop every weekday, starting right back at the beginning with the 1988 pilot.
Cast and producers have helped pick the most memorable episodes including weddings, births, deaths and tragedies - such as the great storm and the 2002 epic bus crash.
In addition, each throwback episode will be introduced by much-loved cast including Ray Meagher, Ada Nicodemou, Lynne McGranger, Emily Symons, Georgie Parker and Shane Withington.
On the walk down memory lane, Ray Meagher, who also celebrates 35 years of playing Home and Away mainstay Alf Stewart, says: “What a lovely way to pay homage to our 35 years on air by celebrating our most beloved moments...
"I’ve been fortunate enough to be a part of the Home and Away family since the very beginning, and I couldn’t be prouder of the work our talented cast and crew put in to making our show the success it continues to be today… I hope fans enjoy looking back at these episodes just as much as we enjoyed making them.”
Greg Barnett, Commissioning Editor, Factual Entertainment, Unscripted, Channel 5 & P+ adds: “I’m delighted we are marking Home and Away’s 35th anniversary with this special My5 event packed with memorable moments and much-loved characters. Fans young and old should find something great they remember and love. Over the years, there’s certainly been plenty of drama in Summer Bay.”
Home and Away Classics: Celebrating 35 Years of the Legendary Soap will begin from Monday 21st November with daily episodes dropping across six weeks, culminating in a look back at 35 epic episodes from 35 epic years of Home and Away.
