Network Ten is celebrating its 50th anniversary with the special, 50 Years Young.
Hosted by The Project’s Carrie Bickmore and Peter Helliar the special will look at the memorable shows and moments from Ten’s 50 years on air.
“I’m thrilled to be co-hosting 50 Years Young with Peter Helliar. As a child I used to watch It’s A Knockout with my family and we would try and use inflatable pool toys and fun things to create our own version of the show in the backyard,” Bickmore said — while Helliar is looking forward to revisiting one particular Neighbours moment: “I’m looking forward to looking back on some iconic Ten moments. Carrie and I can’t wait to recreate Scott and Charlene’s wedding as the centrepiece of our hosting duties.”
Appearing in the special are Dr Chris Brown, Sandra Sully, Johnny Young, Chrissie Swan, Denise Drysdale, Claudia Karvan, Ryan “Fitzy” Fitzgerald, Samuel Johnson, Osher Gunsberg, Jennifer Hansen, Steve Vizard, Dave Hughes, Bruce Mansfield, Terence Donovan, Ian “Dicko” Dickson, Toni Pearen, Ed Phillips and the cast of Neighbours.
The program will also reveal the results of the viewer poll of Ten’s top 50 favourite shows of all time.
