Which network are repeating it from episode 1?

I know that 5 star are showing classic old episodes voted for by the viewers whilst the show is out of season in Australia and off air but I didn't know anyone was re-running Home and Away from the very start.

Also, I personally don't envisage a network in the UK picking up and repeating Prisoner (apparently, they would have to pay every cast member royalty fees because it would be its third screening or something) but I suppose you never know.

But it doesn't really matter IMO as we've got the DVD releases now giving fans the opportunity to relive the series at their own pace / leisure.

In that case, I think some (most?) of the Prisoner eps are on youtube.

I don't think they're re-running it in its entirety mate.

It looks as though they're just showing 1 episode from each of the 25 years the show has been on screen for whilst it's off air in Australia.

When it goes off in Australia for its summer break it also has to go off in the UK as we're now more or less up to date in terms of the episodes that are being screened down under.

Apparently, they chose to get the ball rolling by screening the feature length pilot episode from the show's very first year on air which was 1987 so I think this is how the confusion has arisen.
