The closing is the slow male theme. The opening varies.

I have to say, the slow male theme works well on the end credits, you can here it beneath the continuity announcer.

What do you think will happen to the Opening and Closing Credits next year?

I think it will stay the same for at least a few more years, it's always been like that.

I can't see the show ever reverting to full opening credits it had in 1988-2008(?). The show is much darker now, so having everyone smiling and laughing doesn't really fit the tone. I'd expect something more like Hollyoaks if we did ever get titles again.

They should do what the Bold and the Beautiful has done and remaster the original titles but with modern cast and imagery. B&B also did little nods to its past, such as when Brooke is in the same colour and style dress as Stephanie in the original. Home and Away could use the full theme from 1988 or a version similar with the singers they have used this year for example on a Monday, or whenever they want to fill in extra minutes, this would have the cast and names of characters/actors. They could then use a very fast 10-15 second version most of the time, which could go "Someone you can rely on, closer each day, Home and Away." this version, instead of showing the cast would show the still scenery shots. Once the scenery shots are done, you would see the words 'Home and Away' on the beach, or on the pier, or the surf club, or near Summer Bay House, or near the hilly Eucalyptus Forests. They could use different shots to mix it up.
