Neighbours

Neighbours Theme ( 1992 )

Neighbours is an Australian television soap opera. It was first broadcast on the Seven Network on 18 March 1985. It was created by TV executive Reg Watson.

Although successful in Melbourne, Neighbours underperformed in the Sydney before Seven cancelled it. The show was immediately bought by rival network Ten. They had to build replica sets because Seven destroyed the originals to prevent its rival from obtaining them. Ten began screening Neighbours on 20 January 1986, taking off where the previous series left off and commencing with episode 171. Neighbours has since become the longest running drama series in Australian television and in 2005, it was inducted collectively into the Logie Hall of Fame. On 11 January 2011, Neighbours moved to Ten’s digital channel, Eleven.
