The first great aussie soap

Nobody says Australia in the 70s like this early soap. Shows up nonsense like "Neighbours" and "Home and Away" for the assinine purile tripe it is. Centered around a ficticious apartment block in Sydney's fashionable Eastern suburbs this wasn't brilliant, but it shook up a naive and innocent aussie tv audience with it's early depictions of nudity and it's often sophisticated subject matter for the time. I think "Chances" was sort of and attempt to recreate the energy and controversy, but this was the real deal. And some of those 70s fashions my god! Floral dresses with big hair and wide ties and hang glider collars galore. Did people really look that awful?!
