Over the years there have been storylines and scenes which the BBC deemed unsuitable for its daytime slots. Storylines such as Glen and Lucy committing incest, Billy and Melissa’s attempts to have sex and Danni's pregnancy scare are all storylines that the BBC edited out. Large edits such as these meant episodes had to be merged. Campaigns were lead by fans in 1998 and 2002 for UK Gold (who repeat the show) to show these storylines fully uncut.

The 1998 campaign paid off, and the Glen and Lucy storyline was shown on the channel uncut. UK Gold later returned to the edited versions of the show and many minor edits that were made by the Beeb were shown on the channel.

In January 2002 fans started a new campaign in which e-mails and phone calls were made to UK Gold asking them to show the upcoming Billy and Melissa and Danni and Mal storylines uncut. To fans' delight, Steven North, UK Gold’s Head of Programming, made this statement in February 2002:

"We have in the past played the BBC edited versions of the soap, however our compliance department has been looking at the original tapes to see whether or not the storylines you mentioned are now suitable for the daytime audience. I am pleased to say that with the exception of one small edit, due to a language issue, we feel that we can now transmit the unedited versions of Neighbours. This will come into effect from March. We are now looking at all future episodes of Neighbours and will play them in their unedited state. I obviously cannot guarantee that there will be no future edits made to the series, however we will endeavour to play them as they were originally made wherever possible."
