New Zealand’s first soap, Close to Home, ran on Television One almost continuously, for eight years (1975 to 1983). At its peak in 1977, nearly 1 million viewers tuned in each week.

“Whatever Close to Home did in the way of dramatic entertainment, and it certainly had its following, the serial provided a valuable training ground for production staff and actors. From lighting, set construction, video camera works and editing, to the continual pressure on script writers, the series laid a firm foundation for the future.” Robert Boyd-Bell, New Zealand Television the First 25 Years, p.166
