Trivia

Ray Meagher remains the only original cast member still on the show since its premiere in 1988. Costars Kate Richie (Sally) and Norman Coburn (Fisher) received a Guinness World Record along with Meagher for being the longest-serving actors in an Australian serial in 2001. Coburn left in 2003 after fifteen years, while Richie left in 2008 after twenty years on the show. Both have since been eclipsed by Lynne McGranger who has held the role of Irene Roberts since 1992, and is now the second-longest serving actor in the same role (and longest-serving actress) in Australian television history behind costar Meagher. Ada Nicodemou has also been on the show continuously for seventeen years, since 2000, also overtaking Coburn. See more »

Josie Russell: Irene?
Irene Roberts: Eh?
Josie Russell: Could you get Tasha to sit down and talk to me, please?
[Irene scoffs]
Josie Russell: I just want her to realise that this whole resort thing isn't personal, it's just a job.
Irene Roberts: Yeah, well I'm sorry, but I can't help you.
Josie Russell: You can't or you won't?
Irene Roberts: Both. You know, even if I wanted to, which I don't, there's no way Tasha's going to listen to anything you have to say.

are you insane?
10 November 2004 | by kiaoraSee all my reviews

I can't help but notice that most of the people who dislike Home and Away are from the UK. This isn't a criticism at all, I just find it funny, and it makes sense because the lifestyle over there is so completely different. My partner is English and has been here (in NZ) 2 and a half years, I watch Home and Away every day without fail and he just doesn't get it. We have re runs from 1990 on PrimeTV and it is brilliant being able to watch earlier episodes as well as the new. Home and Away is an awesome representation of Aussie life, the characters are great, Credit where credits due, you Aussies make a brilliant soap. I say this because you guys obviosly have a liking for our music, every piece of background music in the diner or surfclub is Kiwi, (well a lot of it) there's a lot of dub and the feelers good on ya. Honestly Home and Away far surpasses things like Eastenders and Coronation St, and i'd say that would be the opinion of most Kiwis and Aussies.
