First aired in March 1985, Neighbours is one of Australia’s greatest success stories. The soap opera follows the lives of families who live in Ramsey Street in the fictional suburb of Erinsborough.
In 2010 Neighbours will celebrate its 25th anniversary and continues to be a top rating show in Australia, the UK, New Zealand and many other countries. The series is produced by FremantleMedia Australia which was formed in 2007 by the merger of Grundy Television with Crackerjack Productions. The series has frequently been the highest daytime rating programme in the UK and has won countless awards.
Neighbours is currently enjoying a resurgence in popularity and early in 2009 topped the one million viewer mark in Australia.
