    Love Is In The Air

    Ferndale For All - Representing Aotearoa

    Ferndale For All - Representing Aotearoa

    Whereas many soaps are only now focusing on diverse casts and stories after being on air for decades, Shortland Street has also focused on different cultures and communities, right from the first episode with Dr Ropata and the opening line of "Kia Ora, Shortland Street". This episode will look at the different ways Shortland Street has spotlighted NZ's diverse cultures, what impact that's had on the cast, and how they've ensured authenticity in representation.

    Family Ties

    Family Ties

    Family units have been a regular part of the Shortland Street, and those units that manage to work their way into every part of the show are the ones that fans are drawn to - from the Neilsons to the Coopers and now the Kings, these families have reflected Kiwi life every night for decades. This episode would touch on being part of an on-screen family and building those relationships, the impact those characters have on the public, what to do when one of you wants to leave, and the young actors finding their place in the show.

    Til Death Do Us Part - Ferndale Weddings

    Til Death Do Us Part - Ferndale Weddings

    It wouldn’t be a Ferndale wedding with a run away bride, drag queens, an uninvited guest or two or a major disaster. From Lionel and Kirsty disastrous nuptials, through to the first ever gay wedding with Sally Martin and Maeve Mullins, weddings are the best thing to happen for viewers and often the worst thing to happen to the characters.

    Laughter Is The Best Medicine

    In amongst the medical peril, serial killers, explosions, shocking romances and other dramatic set pieces, the comedic side of Shortland Street has long been there as a softening contrast. For this episode, we'll look at the humorous moments and characters that have become fan favourites and viral moments - from Lionel and his muffin cart, to Harry Warner's dick pic incident.
