Home & Away and Neighbours have endured on Australian television screens for three decades and found devoted audiences around the world.

They’ve especially delighted British viewers, keen for their vicarious share of the sunny seaside and suburbs Down Under.

Although not as well known, Aussie soap Return to Eden – which ran for just 22 episodes more than 30 years ago – has had its own international success.

In France, 13 years of re-runs ensured a regular audience, while the Dynasty-style show was an unlikely hit in Finland.

Return to Eden aired for only one season in 1986, after first being televised as a three-part mini-series in 1983.
