BiographyHistory

Television script-writer and script editor.

Sue Hore began working as a script-writer in the late 1980s. By the early 1990s, she was working on Crawford Productions' The Flying Doctors, which had begun some years earlier, in the mid-1980s. She soon began working on programs for the Australian Children's Television Foundation, including episodes of Lift Off and Sky Trackers. In the late 1990s, she wrote widely for a variety of television series, including adult dramas Mercury and SeaChange, medical soap opera All Saints, and American production Flipper (filmed in Australia and largely written by Australian script-writers).

Since 2000, Hore has continued to write for both children's programs and adult dramas. Her work on children's programs includes scripts for Jonathan M. Shiff Productions' Horace and Tina (2001); Burberry Productions' The Sleepover Club; Great Western Entertainment's Wormwood (2007), based on various short stories by Paul Jennings; and the Australian/German/Singaporean co-production A gURL's wURLd (2011). Her scripts for adult dramas include work on Something in the Air (2001), Always Greener (2002), MDA (2003), McLeod's Daughters (2004), and Headland (2005).

In particular, she has written a number of scripts for crime dramas, including Janus (1994-1995), Halifax f.p. (1997), Water Rats (1996-1998), Stingers (1999), Murder Call (2000), Marshall Law (2002), Blue Heelers (1994-2003), and Out of the Blue (2008).

In 2008, Hore began working as a script-writer on Neighbours, for which she has written at least thirty episodes. However, her work on rival soap opera Home and Away is even more extensive: she wrote at least seventy-one episodes for the program in the twenty years between 1988 and 2008.

Hore has also worked as a script editor for programs including Home and Away, Mercury, State Coroner, Something in the Air, Neighbours.
