A brief review of observational full-disc helioseismology is carried out with emphasis on issues of interest in the developing field of seismology of Sun-like stars. The frequency precision obtained from extended full-disc helioseismic data sets and the activity cycle variation of solar p-mode parameters are summarised and related to recent and potential asteroseismic studies. The potential advantages of sharing approaches to the analysis of real and simulated data between helio- and astero-seismology groups are discussed.
