The week-long party will see some of the biggest names in television join co-hosts Ita Buttrose, Jessica Rowe, Joe Hildebrand and Sarah Harris as they look back on their favourite moments over the past two years.

Tomorrow, in an Australian morning television exclusive, Alan Dale chats to Angela Bishop.

Rising to fame as Jim Robinson on the iconic Australian soap Neighbours, Alan went on to appear in some of the biggest television shows in the world, including 24, Ugly Betty, NCIS, The O.C., The West Wing and ER, and in films such as The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Hollywood Homicide and Star Trek: Nemesis.

Best known for her roles in Oklahoma!, Carousel, The Music Man and Elmer Gantry and as Shirley Partridge in The Partridge Family, Hollywood legend Shirley Jones will appear on Studio 10 on Wednesday. The Academy Award winning actress and multi-talented performer will talk about singing with Hugh Jackman and open up about her racy past, among other things.

On Thursday, in another Australian television exclusive, William Shatner of Star Trek fame will talk about his long friendship with fellow cast member, the late Leonard Nimoy, and his feud with George Takei.

Then on Friday, the celebrations will come to a crescendo as Studio 10 celebrates its 500th episode.
