The family of Hungary
Everybody knew who lived on the first, second and third floor and on. It was not just a simple soap opera, it was much more. They lived with us, they were part of nearly everybody's home. They were our neighbors, friends or even enemies. People talked about them in the market, in shops because the main topic was how the people of the 1980s and 1990s lived. Their problems were our problems. The title 'Neighbours' was a really good choice. Whole families were sitting in front of the television, school children talked about the stories as all generations took part in. When it started in 1987 I was just a school boy in a primary school when finished I was already a secondary school teacher. I was a fan of this series and left out only some episodes. Now there are new series but not even one of them can reach the success this first Hungarian series could get.
