    They don't show it during the summer as Australia have a long christmas break from Home and Away. Otherwise the UK would end up broadcasting before Australia

    Yes, H&A lovers, wouldn't it be fantastic to watch it from the beginning again! I missed a fair few years in between, because I was living in Germany at the time, so there will be loads of episodes I haven't watched yet. Make our wish come true, Channel5! :))))))

    I'd like so see episodes from when the original blond Pippa was in it. i've seen clips on the net. The early years looked good.

    They repeated these last time why don't they play the older ones when Gregg & Bobby and Shane & Angel were in it. Now Shane is in Underbelly.

    I would like to add my request for repeats, from the beginning if possible, or the earliest you can.

    This sounds great but however australia are showing episodes right from the beginning. So how come you can't show any episodes that were on itv? Will there be any chance of you getting the rights in the future. Thanks.
