7TWO Transmission Discussion

Recommended Posts

Someone on Facebook said they have contacted Umbrella Entertainment letting them know that there is a market for 1996-1999 Home and Away following the repeats being taken off air. Would new contracts have to be drawn up if episodes were going to be released on DVD, does it count as a 'repeat'?

Anyway, the email address for entertainment service Umbrella is [email protected]

Perhaps if a lot of us email them they may consider releasing the episodes on DVD?

ETA: How many times have the 1996-1999 episodes been screened? The original time, then the Living repeat? Or was there a repeat on ITV2 in the early 2000s too? Has there ever been an Australian repeat on 7 before for those episodes?

Would ITV be prohibited from airing the 1996 episodes they presumably have?

I contacted ITV a long time ago about the possibility of them repeating those episodes and they told me their rights had expired, meaning they had reverted to the Australian copyright holders.(Which is why 5* have broadcast some of them.)

Knowing Five, those idiots will start playing the ones they've already trotted out as Summer fillers. I don't mind the 2000 Season as long as it's the point BEFORE Five's acquisition which was still a pretty hot period (Jesse on the run, Gypsy off the rails, Nash family imploded, Edward/Huntingdon's, etc

Last time five showed the 2000 Season on Five Star they chickened out and gave some feeble-ass excuse.

A small amount of episodes from 1996 haven't been repeated anywhere ever such as a Jacks last episode. I be grateful to seeing these episodes

^ I think Living picked up 1996 from 1921 (titles overhaul with Angel getting 2nd billing behind Pip)  and ran with it until Trouble go their mitts on the show.

Can anyone clarify?

To be fair to them, on the two occasions they have shown episode from before mid-2000, they have all been episodes they haven't shown before.They did have a reputation for churning out the same 00s episodes each year though (2008 finale, Jack and Martha's wedding, 2004 olympic cliffhanger...).

Yes I remember that. They also had those two catch up episodes before hand with clips from 1991 to 1996 narrated by Kate Ritchie.

After trouble dumped it back in December 2002, Living picked it back up for another 3 months from January 2003 but in the graveyard slot of 2am then presumably when they reached the end of the eps they had it was axed altogether
