Neighbours is a long-running and multiple Logie Award-winning Australian soap opera, which began its run in March 1985. The series follows the daily lives of several families who live in the six houses at the end of Ramsay Street, a quiet cul-de-sac in the fictional middle-class suburb of Erinsborough. Storylines explore the romances, family problems, domestic squabbles, and other key life events affecting the various residents. More than most serials, Neighbours features a large proportion of young actors among its ever-rotating cast. Neighbours celebrated its twentieth anniversary in 2005 with some special episodes which featured appearances from several former members of the cast.

History and popularity

Through its entire run, Neighbours has screened as five 22-minute (excluding advertisement breaks) episodes a week, shown each week night in an early-evening slot. The 1985 season was broadcast on the Seven Network, at 5.30 p.m. in Sydney and at 6.30 p.m. in Melbourne and other regions. The Melbourne-produced programme had underperformed in the crucial Sydney market[2] leading to the Seven Network cancelling the series at the end of that year. Neighbours was immediately picked up by the rival Network Ten.[3][4] On Ten, it initially attracted low ratings.[5] The Network worked hard to publicise the series;[6] they revamped the show, adding several new, younger cast members including Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan as Scott and Charlene, while a concerted publicity drive largely focused on these new actors[7] in a star-focused campaign recalling that of the Hollywood star system where stars were packaged to feed into a fan culture.[8] This paid off for the series and by the end of 1987 it was attracting high ratings.[9] Australian audiences waned considerably by the early 1990s,[10] although viewing figures had recovered slightly by the end of the decade.[11] The Seven Network is an Australian television network, owned by the Seven Media Group. ...

In the 2000s rival soap opera Home and Away emerged as more popular than Neighbours in Australia. Home and Away is broadcast there on the Seven Network at 7.00 p.m. Monday to Friday. As of 2004 Neighbours was regularly attracting just under a million viewers per episode,[12] low for Australian prime time television. In 2007 Home and Away was averaging 1.4 million viewers in Australia to Neighbours' 700,000.[13] Home and Away (also commonly known as H&A) is a Logie-winning soap opera that is produced in Sydney by the Seven Network since July 1987. ...


Neighbours is more popular in the UK, where it used to screen on BBC One usually attracting an average of 3 million viewers for its lunchtime showing and 2.6 million viewers for its evening repeat.[14] It is frequently the highest-rating daytime programme in the UK, outside of news bulletins.[15] In 2008 the UK broadcaster changed to rival channel Five from the 5331st episode. The episode received 2.2m (14.2% share) which was a drop of 300,000 on the BBC's average. However it boosted Five's usual share for the 5.30pm slot by 3 and a half times. Home and Away, broadcast directly afterwards on the same channel, received 1.4 m on the same evening. [16] For the BBC radio station, see BBC Radio 1. ...

2007-2008 revamp

A major revamp of Neighbours occurred in 2007. In Australia the show's viewing figures had in early 2007 dropped to fewer than 700,000 a night and the attitudes among long term fans of the show to storylines were negative.[17]


The revamp includes now recording the show in HDTV video, introducing a new family of characters, the departure of several existing characters, a new version of the show's familiar theme song and a new style of opening titles.[18] In addition the use of titles for individual episodes was abandoned after being the norm for the previous three years. Daniel Bennett, the new head of drama at Network Ten, announced that the crux of the Ramsay Street story would go "back to basics" and follow a less sensational path than of late with the emphasis on family relations and suburban reality. These changes came into effect over several months in 2007; July 23, 2007 saw the introduction of the new theme music and graphics. Ratings for that episode averaged 1.05 million viewers in the 18:30 slot. It was the first time the programme's viewing figures topped 1 million in 2007.[19] Neighbours was also made available for viewers to watch online via Network Ten's website.[20] High-definition television (HDTV) is a digital television broadcasting system with greater resolution than traditional television systems (NTSC, SECAM, PAL). ... is the 204th day of the year (205th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... Year 2007 (MMVII) was a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar in the 21st century. ...


By the end of 2007 it was reported that producers had hoped the Neighbours revamp would push the ratings up to between 900,000 to 1 million an episode. It had, however, resulted in a more modest boost, with ratings hovering at about 800,000 a night. The same viewing period had shown an increase in ratings for Home and Away, which was now averaging 1.4 million viewers every night.[21]


In February 2008, new executive producer, Susan Bower, announced that she would be implementing further changes to the programme in a bid to keep it competitive and make it a social talking point once again. The argument she cited was that the highly-publicised 2007 revisions promised much, but ultimately did not present themselves as a signficant enough change. Bower promises to retain the return to traditional Neighbours values but with an injection of drama that remains recognisable and relevant.

The length of time between the Australian and terrestrial UK broadcasts decreased significantly from the original 18 months of 1986 due to Neighbours being taken off air at Christmas in Australia, whilst the series was originally broadcast every weekday year round on the BBC.

Former broadcasts

The show has also been sold to television networks in many other countries. In the Summer of 1991 WWOR in New York City aired late 1980s episodes of Neighbours in the late afternoons. Episodes from 1999 were broadcast for a six-week trial basis on the American channel Oxygen in March 2004. At first, it was shown in the afternoon opposite higher-rated American soaps such as The Young and the Restless and All My Children, which gave the show anemic ratings from the first broadcast; the people who would be most interested in the show were watching other, more established serials. After a couple of weeks, the show moved to a late-night time slot and eventually left the air entirely. It was not the first Australian soap opera to be broadcast in the United States: The Sullivans, Prisoner, Home and Away, The Young Doctors, Paradise Beach, and Pacific Drive had also been previously shown.

Shane Connor's dismissal

After being fired from the series in 2003, former cast member Shane Connor (Joe Scully) filed for wrongful dismissal. Evidence presented in court in October 2005 described alleged on-set problems such as arguments with the cast and crew, lateness and absenteeism. This behaviour has been connected to the actor's period of drug use, after the death of his brother.[40] Connor admitted that he'd had problems in that period, prior to receiving a final warning in April 2003, but contested Grundy's claims that he had acted unprofessionally immediately before his dismissal in September 2003. He won the case and was awarded AUD $196,709 plus interest and costs.[41] Connor is now living in the UK, where he is appearing in commercials and makes appearances at university students' unions.

Neighbours is recorded in Melbourne. Interior scenes are taped at the Global Television studios in Forest Hill, Victoria in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. These studios were previously the Network Ten Nunawading studios, used frequently by Fremantle (then Reg Grundy). External scenes of the building and its grounds have been used in several TV series, including Neighbours, but perhaps most notably as the fictional setting for Grundy's Prisoner. Ten moved to South Yarra selling their previous studios but continued to tape some of their programmes there, leasing the facilities from the new owners. Pin Oak Court in nearby Vermont South is used for outdoor taping to represent the fictional Ramsay Street. This location has been used since Neighbours began and is a popular tourist haunt. In the story Ramsay Street is situated in the fictional suburb of Erinsborough. Throughout most of the series' run it was not emphatically stated which city of Australia the suburb was set in. Occasionally evidence appears on screen and in dialogue that suggests that Erinsborough is a suburb of Melbourne. In 1996 much was made of a group of residents leaving for a day trip to attend the Melbourne Cup, and several of the characters show their support for AFL teams (a sport endemic to Melbourne), there have been several guest appearances by AFL players, and Melbourne landmarks and features can be identified in some scenes outside of Ramsay Street. In 2004, Libby Kennedy was seen travelling from Adelaide back to Melbourne, and she made reference to this fact when she bumped into Rocco Cammeniti in a country hospital. In a July 2007 episode where Janelle Timmins evaluates visits to her children now residing in Queensland she explicitly names her current residence as being in "Melbourne". Since the revamp episodes began airing in July 2007, several references have been made to the Parker family moving to Melbourne from Queensland. These episodes have also been presented with a new titles sequence which clearly makes use of the Melbourne city skyline and the Yarra River. View of Pinoak Court, Vermont South. ...

In the story, Erinsborough is often contrasted with the neighbouring, and equally fictitious, suburb of Eden Hills.

Depending on the broadcaster, each theme has received various edits for timing purposes, the most edited versions being broadcast by the BBC in the UK. To begin with this was due to the fact the BBC could not broadcast the advertising featured at the end of Neighbours credit roles but more recently it was also due to a 30 second timing restriction imposed on all programming.

Version 1

The full closing theme of version one that was attached to Seven Network-commissioned episodes received a few edits following the # day #, # away #, # blend # and # friends # climaxes when it was shown on the BBC, but was left untouched in the rest of the world.

Version one was released in 1988 as a single, charting at #84 and remaining on the chart for 5 weeks.[43] This version contained the full closing theme and the last verse being repeated twice. The opening also featured a guitar section, as well as additional piano chords (which was also heard in 1990 often during the pre-titles episode recap) For other uses, see Guitar (disambiguation). ... Pianoforte redirects here. ...


Version 2

The opening theme of version two changed frequently. From the introduction of the revised song until mid-way through 1990 there was a full length opening song, however, mid-way through 1990 this changed to a 10-second instrumental piece with two primary instruments, a Harmonica and an Electric Piano, used in the first episode shown on Channel 7. This was used for a few weeks before being replaced by a vocal version of the same short piece. This lasted until version three of the theme debuted in January 1995. A harmonica is a free reed wind instrument. ... An electric piano (e-piano) is an electric musical instrument whose popularity started in the late 1960s, was at its greatest during the 1970s and still is big today. ...


Version 3

Version three used a jazzy, funky 23 second opening song. This was arranged by Peter Sullivan, debuted in 1995 essentially as a re-record of the 1989 Barry Crocker theme with Melbourne-based singer Greg Hind. Its closing theme differed significantly from the previous two arrangements in that it concentrated solely on repeating the second verse of the song to make up the song's length, thus discarding lyrics such as # Just a friendly wave each morning... # and # Next door is only a footstep away #. This song was heavily edited and used as a revised opening theme from part-way through the 1995 season onwards, and was adopted as the BBC's closing theme from 1995.


Version 4

Version four, arranged by music director / screen composer Chris Pettifer, debuted in 1999 essentially as a re-record of the 1995 theme with two Melbourne-based singers Wendy Stapleton and Paul Norton. Pettifer changed it to a more rock & roll key to suit the vocalists and introduced overdriven electric guitar, giving it a rockier feel. The opening theme reverted to 23 seconds and replaced # Everybody needs good neighbours # with # Should be there for one another #. Once again there was a shortened closing theme for UK transmission. One of the major changes made to the theme heard in Australia during this era was the removal of the repeated backing vocal # That's when good... # from mid-2000 onwards, although this remained on episodes broadcast outside of Australia and the UK.


Version 5

Version five was launched in 2002 and once again a shorter piece of closing music was edited for the UK market, with the rest of the world using the same 76 second variant. This was sung by Janine Maunder and arranged by Steve Wade. The opening and closing songs followed the same lyrical and verse arrangement introduced in 1992. In the show's 20th anniversary episode broadcast, The song was reduced to an instrumental in the end credits so past characters who made cameos would be audible when they made parting messages.


In 2006 a very slightly remixed version of the same closing theme debuted. The intention was for all territories to begin transmitting the same 45 second version at the end of their episodes, however UK broadcasts retained the previous 35 second arrangement for a few weeks until they received a newer batch of episodes with the revised theme attached. Despite a brief period of uniformity, by mid-2006 the BBC had requested further edits to be made to their version of the song to bring it back down to 35 seconds. Australia then reverted to an almost full length track, albeit with minor edits at various sections to keep running time to 55 seconds, whilst other markets, including New Zealand and the Republic of Ireland, continued to receive the original 45 second arrangement launched at the start of 2006. This meant that for over a year between 2006-2007 there were three different edits of the closing theme tune being broadcast around the world as well as three different closing credits designs to accompany them.


Despite the many edits made to the 2002-2007 closing song, the opening theme remained unchanged for the duration at 23 seconds.


Version 6

A new version of the theme tune sung by Sandra de Jong debuted in Australia on July 23, 2007 as part of a revamp of the show. This was arranged by Neighbours Music Director, Chris Pettifer and song writer - producer Adrian Hannan. The opening song is longer than in recent years at 29 seconds and is also notable for re-introducing # Everybody needs good neighbours # to the opening song after an eight year absence. The full edition of the closing theme continues to solely use the second verse of the Neighbours song, as has been the case since 1992. The new version does not repeat the verse however, using instead a repetitive technique applied to the # That's when good neighbours become good friends # line and an additional instrumental piece to make up the theme's length which remains unchanged at 55 seconds. For the 2008 season onwards, Australian TEN episodes were followed by a shorter 18 second instrumental arrangement of the new theme tune, accompanying shortened closing credits on Monday-Thursday episodes. Friday episodes transmit with the full closing sequence. In the UK the 18 second closing credits were adopted as of episode of 5331 for all episodes broadcast, including Fridays and omnibuses, whilst New Zealand and Ireland currently follows the playout arrangement used by Australia. is the 204th day of the year (205th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... Year 2007 (MMVII) was a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar in the 21st century. ...


Sombre version

A sombre piano version of theme is reserved to close episodes surrounding the death of long standing or original character. In the early years, it was often used for tender moments. This version accompanied a relevant photo montage during the closing credits, starting in 1992 with Todd Landers, in the episode after his death, and was used again for the deaths of Jim Robinson and Helen Daniels. Madge Bishop also received the sad theme tune over the regular 2000 season closing sequence. A montage of clips featuring Madge during her final year (since the show had started filming in 16:9 widescreen) were shown in the recap of the next episode. Todd Robert Landers was a fictional character in the Australian soap opera Neighbours, played by Kristian Schmid. ...

Neighbours has already hit the 5000th episode mark and looks set to continue serving up the laughter, tears and drama that has taken the world by storm.', 'Neighbours is a weekday soap opera exploring the lives and relationships of the residents of Ramsay Street in Erinsborough.
Neighbours (1401 words)
These include Neighbours' focus on the everyday, the domestic and the suburban; its portrayal of women as doers; its reliance on teen sex appeal and unrebellious youth; its "feelgood" characters and wholesome neighbourliness.
Neighbours was the first television program in Britain to be screened twice daily and stripped across all five week days by the BBC, recently commanded into greater economic accountability by the Thatcher government of the 1980s.
While Neighbours was winning U.K. audiences of 20 million by the end of 1988 and has consistently challenged the two English soaps for the position of highest rating drama on British television, it has also been criticised for its bland representation of life in a sunny, relatively trouble-free, seemingly egalitarian Australian suburb.
