  1. I tend to disagree with this statement. In fact, I think the best thing they could've done was to skip over the mourning and the grief. It's honestly the most boring thing to watch when it's all the time and as you noted, it would've been at least a third of the cast... And really, by skipping it all, it allowed for them to go back into normal storytelling as opposed to having to wait it out...
  2. Hi Greg, There is a VW Kombi in the episode. Below is a screen cap from 4015. The scene from which this cap is taken is between Sally, Flynn, Leah and Dan as they head on a camping trip together. I've blurred out the number plate, on the off-chance it's the same. Hope this helps!

  4. From our interview with Dan Bennett: Marilyn Chambers received an electric shock and fell into a coma. When she eventually awoke, it was discovered she had amnesia, and under the impression it was 1996, believed she was still married to Donald Fisher. Just before the accident, Alf conveniently went to visit Donald. Was the idea to bring him back ever toyed with? Yep. We had a huge Fisher story planned. I hope it plays out one day.

  8. I'd say it'd be part of the contractual agreement that Seven has made with Five.
  9. Well interestingly, the decision to marry Rhys and Beth was made by then-Script Producer, Coral Drouyn. She left the series halfway through the 2004 season and was replaced by Bevan Lee. Of Bevan's decision to write out Rhys (and Max), he said in a 2004 BTTB interview: "I preferred to lose Rhys and Max through a very human story of a man falling in love with his first wife again." Of Coral's opinion on Rhy's departure, she said in a 2007 BTTB interview: "I would not have got rid of Rhys – at least not for some time. I think Beth was made into a victim…and I haven’t watched the show this year so I don’t know where’s she’s going now. I had planned a pregnancy for them, which threw the whole family into disarray (Kirsty and Beth pregnant together) and then …because of her age…. The baby has problems – will be disabled…and she has to make the decision whether or not to go full term. She decides to terminate – for the baby’s sake….Rhys is outraged and leaves her. Kirsty and even Kit turns against her….you killed a baby….they can’t understand her dilemma…. that she felt it not fair to bring a really disabled baby into the world. Hopefully it would have played with the same intensity as the Rhys infidelity and the Kirsty/Kane story."

  13. I have always thought that John and Marilyn would be much better off without each other. Both characters have immense potential, but not married to one another.
  14. The order is divided into a general and a military division. The five levels of appointment to the order in descending order of seniority have been: Knight and Dame of the Order of Australia (AK and AD – discontinued, original quota of 4 per annum); Companion of the Order of Australia (AC – quota of 35 per annum); Officer of the Order of Australia (AO – quota of 140 per annum); Member of the Order of Australia (AM – quota of 365 per annum);and Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM – no quota). Honorary awards at all levels may be made to deserving non-citizens – these awards are made additional to the quotas.
  15. But you see, those three were receipted awards this year. Pippa was in the 90s
  16. In today's Australia Day ceremonies, the late Corney was awarded an Order of Australia Medallion for her service to the performing arts as a performer. https://www.backtothebay.net/news/2019/01/26/home-and-away-veterans-among-oam-recipients/

  19. While the percentage of costs vary, Five does pay a significant portion of costs. Both shows would be in dire situations without Five’s financial input.

  23. It more comes down to contractual obligations with paying actors.
  24. Okay, I’m going to say one last thing on the matter to clear things up. The answer ‘certain parties’ were getting from Channel 7 were from those in the call centre who are only privy to the information on immediate programming. BTTB directly contacted Angus Ross, the Director of Network Programming, and Therese Hegarty, the Director of Content Rights and Distribution and their answer was given. I’m sorry, but their word is definitely more reliable than a few people in a call-centre with no knowledge of the goings-on in an executive meeting. This whole conversation was inflamed by a certain few who, in a thinly veiled attempt, were trying to cause drama that that was no need to create. At the end of the day, the factors surrounding the axing of The Early Years, however upsetting it was to users, Will most likely never be known.
