Didn’t know home and away was on itv

Channel 5 brought the rights in 2001 after 13 years on ITV

I knew 5 got Neighbours from BBC, I thought H&A was BBC too.

Home and Away was first broadcast on ITV from 11 February 1989 until 8 June 2000. It went off air for 12 months as ITV had an exclusivity clause that prevented any other broadcaster from airing the show for a year. It made its debut on Channel 5 on 16 July 2001.
