Storyline

This daytime serial dramatized the power struggles and personal machinations between two feuding political families the wealthy Cleggs and middle-class McCandlesses. Storylines developed from the star-crossed romance between Julie Clegg and Tyler McCandless, which re-activated a lifetime feud between their respective families. In the series' final year, the political intrigue expanded internationally, as several characters became involved in the problems of the war-torn, Middle Eastern nation of Baraqu. Written by Mark Faulkner <mtflknr@cc.memphis.edu>

Great show
2 October 1999 | by (italy) – See all my reviews

Capitol was the first us daytime soap opera to be shown on RAITV early 1983.It was wildly successful throughout its run in my country.It was a phenomenon like B&B is now over here.It was a shame it was cancelled in the us to make room for B&B.It was re-runned many many times(all the episodes) only on RAITV.
