For the 35th anniversary of the soap opera, Home and Away has confirmed that iconic episodes would be shown.
For the occasion, Channel 5 is airing some special programming that includes reruns of some of the Australian soap opera’s most significant episodes.
Home and Away Classics: Celebrating 35 Years of the Legendary Soap premieres on My5 starting the next Monday (November 21), and it will run for six weeks.
The 2002 bus crash plotline, as well as noteworthy debuts, departures, births, and deaths that have influenced what Summer Bay is today, may all be expected by viewers.
Ray Meagher (Alf Stewart), Ada Nicodemou (Leah Patterson), Lynne McGranger (Irene Roberts), Emily Symons (Marilyn Chambers), Georgie Parker (Roo Stewart), and Shane Withington are among the actors who will introduce each instalment (John Palmer).
Greg Barnett, commissioning editor for Channel 5, announced this anniversary event: “I’m thrilled that this unique My5 event, which is filled with priceless moments and beloved characters, will help us celebrate Home and Away’s 35th year. Fans of all ages should discover something fantastic they cherish and remember. There has undoubtedly been a lot of drama in Summer Bay over the years.
Ray Meagher, who plays Alf, added: “What a sweet way to honour our 35 years of broadcasting by remembering our favourite moments. I’ve had the good fortune to be a member of the Home and Away family from the beginning, and I couldn’t be more grateful for the effort our amazing cast and crew put forward to make our programme the success it has remained. I sincerely hope that viewers will love rewatching these episodes as much as we did when creating them.
Before Home and Away officially celebrates its 35th anniversary on January 17, 2023, these episodes are airing.
