I used to stay with an old family friend to keep her company when her husband died and her next door neighbour used to come in and we would watch prisoner on Tyne Tees at 11.10 on Mondays and Thursdays! I started watching it just after the women returned from woodridge after the fire. I loved it from the off and would try and stay up to watch it when I was at home and if I couldn't would tape it and get up early to watch it before I went to school. One thing I do remember is that as soon as the music started for the end credits the old ladies little dog would wake up and go to bed.. It was as though he knew is was PCBH and then bed time.

I'm so excited that the DVD's have been released as I can watch it from start to finish!!

It sounds like you're going to re-live some fond associated memories when you watch Prisoner again - especially once you get to where you first got into the series.

I'm not a fan of prisoner but my dad LOVES it! Used to make me and my sisters watch it all the time when we were kids.

Pure curiosity.
Every Tuesday/ Thrsday the newspaper had only this to describe it:

'Australian dramaset in awomen's prison'

Never any episodic descriptions until about a year after I got hooked.

I wasso curious about it that I tuned in (ep121) and wwas instantly hooked.

mine was accidental, i used to record a programme called Video View which was after Prisoner, because it was recorded on VHS i used to set the timer 10 mins each end, and for some reason caught the last 10 minutes of an episode and thought it was really good, and i have been watching it ever since

I used to watch PoCBH when my 2 lads were little. As a single parent, I would often sit with my youngest watching it, mainly because it was the only thing on that time of night... apart from Open University. I went from watching it through weary eyes, praying he'd sleep for more than one hour at a time to finding it fascinating. I've not watched it since. I must re-visit but hope it doen't bring back memories of baby induced sleepless nights.

I grew up with it on TV in Australia it was always on during the 1980s, My cousins and I loved it because we enjoyed the endless brawls. The rest was a bit beyond us because we were only children but we loved the fights and the name calling!
