The original soap opera was a different concept in daytime TV dramas when it debuted in 1956. Early television soaps were essentially kine-scope versions of radio programs. They were wordy, overly melodramatic fifteen-minute episodes that separated characters into neat piles of good and bad. The creator, Irna Phillips sensed this new medium could be more, and she fought for her project despite lukewarm response from Procter & Gamble. What was born was a brand new soap opera that ran from thirty minutes, not fifteen, per episode. It shifted the old focus on character in lieu of action with long conversations, more close-ups, flawed "good" characters and ambiguous dialogue. It was an approach perfectly suited for television.

When Rose is in a Spa in Switzerland and escapes, she ends up in Belgium and Belgian farmers tell her she is in 's-Hertogenbosch. From Switzerland to Belgium is approximately 700 Kilometers/435 Miles. On top on that, 's Hertogenbosch isn't even located in Belgium. It's a town in the Netherlands, adding roughly 100 kilometers/62 miles to her travels on foot. See more »
I can't call him because he's in a coma!
Julia Lindsey Snyder:
A coma? Come on, Barbara. Come up with something a little more original. How about - oh, I know. How about a hole opened up, and James fell into the center of the earth?

It is such a shame we don't get to see As the World Turns anymore. It
was such a great show. It should never have been canceled! It ran for
54 years. It had great characters and great actors and actresses who
portrayed them. The show has such an impressive history, it is
legendary. It was never boring, so much happened and we got to see a
lot of epic story lines. If you have never watched it, you really have
missed something. I am only 21 and I've watched the show for 11 years,
in the Netherlands. It will always be part of TV history and the show
should never be forgotten. If you have the chance, watch some clips on
Youtube. You won't be sorry. The world will always turn in my heart.
