Period soap style drama series. In a Melbourne suburb, the Sullivans and their friends and relatives cope with the hardships of the second world war. Set and filmed in Melbourne with Canterbury being the main location because of its proximity to Abbotsford which is where production company Crawfords were based.
The pub featured in the series is The Retreat Hotel in Abbotsford. Episode one was a 90 minute special.
The series was huge not only in Australia but was also one of the first Australian soaps to transfer successfully around the world.
