StorylinesEdit

Home And Away kicked off in January 1988 as a show revolving around the Fletcher couple, Tom and Pippa Fletcher and the various troubled teens they took under their wing: Frank Morgan, Bobby Simpson, Carly Morris, Steven Matheson, Lynn Davenport and Sally Keating, the latter later being adopted by Tom and Pippa. The other main characters were Donald Fisher, Alf Stewart, Ailsa Hogan, Matt Wilson and Lance Smart and his equally brainless partner in crime Martin Dibble who loved winding up the residents and dabbling in petty schemes. And last but not least, Neville McPhee and his busybody wife Floss who lived in a caravan at Summer Bay caravan park.
