Trivia

After the successful introduction of Cornelia Frances as Morag Bellingham shortly after the show started, plans were made to have Rowena Wallace also guest star, in an effort to reunite the two actresses, who were a smash hit as clashing sisters Barbara and Patricia Hamilton on the earlier Channel 7 soap Sons and Daughters. Wallace however was busy at the time, and despite producers holding on to the idea for another year, the plans never eventuated. The possible role for Wallace at that time was never revealed. Eleven years later, Wallace finally joined the cast as recurring character June Reynolds, who went on to marry Donald Fisher, himself having had a long and bitter history with Morag since the show began.

a very good drama
15 March 2002 | by mongoose249See all my reviews

ok,maybe it can be over the top! but the person who said that it was the worst TV show well for a silly TV show its lasted pretty long! it is a very good show. And is famous to many people over the world so get over you self whoever said that!

It is the BEST TV drama yet! Their characters are not real but is really realistic to life in Australia: Divorce, affairs, children, unexpected pregnancies, runaway kids,abusive families, love, loss, honour, and heroism. The diner is something also that makes the show. Believe me people! this is a very good drama. It is very good, Trust Me! its great!
