2013 marks 30 years since pioneering soap opera Close To Home finished beaming into Kiwi living rooms. For just over eight years middle New Zealand found their mirror in the life and times of Wellington’s Hearte clan. Toast the Heartes with the first and final episodes, and a special compilation of ScreenTalk interviews. May your glass be fuller than Vivian’s at Grandad Hearte’s 78th birthday (in the first episode). Vivian (Ilona Rodgers) moans to Tom (John Bach): “you’ve drunk all my cooking sherry”, then tenderises the beef with the empty bottle.
