This series was created by Agnes Nixon who also created One Life to Live and co-created Loving.  Though it premiered on TV in 1970, Nixon actually finished creating the original bible for the series in 1965.

Original music by Dina Dore (1970-1990), Carlina Paul (1970-1990) 

Long running soap that concerned itself with the lives of the many incumbents of the Chandler family and the Martin family who were involved in a long running rivalry with the Chandler's, the show has never been afraid to tackle the odd controversial subject in it's time and was the first daytime soap to tackle the issue of abortion. The show was actually first mooted by Nixon back in the early sixties but didn't reach the air until 1970. The show has stayed consistently near the top of the ratings since the late 1970's.
