(1956–2010)

Trivia

The episode of 22 November 1963 was broken into by CBS to announce the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The actors, however, continued performing (as it was done live until 1975), and a complete, uninterrupted copy of this episode still survives.
The daytime serial Another World (1964) was conceived as a spinoff of this show. It was submitted to CBS, which decided not to air the new program. After "Another World" was picked up by NBC, CBS refused to allow any major characters from this show to appear on the new one. However, one minor character, Mitchell Dru (Geoffrey Lumb), who had also appeared on the CBS soap opera The Brighter Day (1954), did appear on 'Another World".
