Neighbours was one of those truly iconic programmes from the 80s and it’s certainly something that we Brits took very much to our hearts as it was shown twice daily for many years, once at 13:35 just after lunch and then the same episode was repeated at 17:35 whilst we were having our tea.
Over the years, we fell in love with the characters and would tune in religiously to find out what happened to them in the next installment. Whether it was seeing what would happen to everyone’s favourite canine Bouncer The Dog, or everyone’s least favourite nosey neighbour Mrs Mangle, we couldn’t help but turn on every day to see what was happening.
