Does Irene make the 1993 credits?

Irene must be the longest running guest to become a regular!

No she doesn't, but when she arrives as a regular it's only 7 weeks to the end of the season anyway, and of course there was another complete overhaul of the titles at the beginning of 1994.

Quite possibly. I'm trying to think of other characters who made guest appearances for a long time before eventually becoming regular and the only other one I can think of is Peter Baker.

It was just under a year before Vinnie got to the credits but still not as long as Peter and Irene.

Actually maybe you could say Colleen. What with her making guestie appearances through out 88 and 89. Then the one in 97. Return in 99, but not in credit until 2000.

And then there Duncan, if you can include him.

Looking forward to this season!

And there was a musical episode?? Don't remember this one, then again I was only Sally's age in 1993! :P

Haha, not quite but that would make interesting viewing! It's just a performance that some characters take part in at the surf club. Bit more info on it in the article on the main site which might jog your memory.

Though saying that a real life Home and Away Musical with some of the cast did make it's way to UK stages in 1989!

An actual musical episode, with the characters singing would definitely be something haha! Though of all the non-US soaps, I think Home and Away used to be the only one with any chance of getting away with it! Especially back in the days of the orchestral underscores and zanier plots.

When the repeats were first announced, I recall thinking 'how awesome would it be if they got all the way to 1993', never actually thinking it would happen! Massive thanks to SevenTwo!!

Fantastic to see that we've reached 1993 now. I never thought we'd get this far after the Early Years commenced in November 2009 as I thought in all honesty we'd be lucky just to get through 1988.

This is a huge year for the show no doubt and this year probably marks an end of an era for the true 'Early Years' and a new era of the show begins which is the period of 1994 to 1997.

I'm hanging out for 1995 as well, but anyway looking forward to these upcoming episodes nevertheless. Well done to Channel 7 for airing these episodes, it's been fantastic to relive these old episodes.
