I also find it difficult to believe that P&G suddenly care about these shows.

I'm really starting to get suspicious. Part of me is starting to wonder if this isn't some type of Machiavellian strategy to him up interest in buying videos on the interwebs among

soap afficionados and collectors.

One thing about being a soap fan has been clear for many years--your loyalty as a fan will never be rewarded.

 

Also, as much as I have been enjoying some of these reunion live streams, I have to wonder if the mention of songs and highlighting clips that contain pop songs (e.g. showing a scene btw "Lujack" and "Beth" set to the song "Almost Paradise") during these live streams might be setting off some type of trigger. Just wild speculation on my part.

If I'm not mistaken, I believe ANYONE can report copyrighted videos on Youtube, not just the owner of the copyright.  And I think most of these reports are just normal people who get angry or are just vindictive in general.  There are also copyright-nazis out there, who are just normal people who take it upon themselves to police music and other types of copyrights.  So it's not necessarily P&G or other copyright owners causing these shut-downs and removal of episodes.    

 

I hadn't thought of that. It is unfortunate how much malice and spite tends to still go among soap fans even after these shows have been gone for over a decade. I know a few wonderful soap channels that disappeared for this reason. I'm not sure which option I prefer. I just hope the material may show up again someday.

VAULT UPDATE

 

Hi everyone! I am happy to report that I got a new OneDrive account set up and migration of the Vault is now complete! I've just sent out link invitations to people who have previously requested direct access. The links in my signature have now been updated. You may now upload again, as usual - hopefully I won't have to do this process again in a while haha. Please spread the word to those who might now know this yet.

 

Thanks!

Brad

I read that munecojim is now gone and Bob TV is gone again too. So is ClassicOLTL.

 

I don't know what's happening. I find it hard to believe P&G suddenly cares about their soaps. Is this another type of crackdown from Youtube?

 

Old episodes of GL, AWATWT, etc. are the main thing that has kept me going in recent years with the soap landscape such a wasteland. That and the excitement of knowing something new may be uploaded somewhere. Now people are going to be much more scared to put up any content. We are given so little to enjoy these days but corporations want to squeeze out every last drop.

 

Perfectly said. Vintage soaps on the internet have been a godsend to many of us.

Sorry if this was already posted - it's a piece showing Montauk filming in 1984 (for the Beth and Lujack story). With Bob Calhoun, Judi Evans, Vincent Irizarry, etc.

Thanks for posting that video @DRW50
 I certainly have never seen that video, which seems like a featurette for the VHS age.

Whoa, on the spelling of Vincent's last name in the credits.

Is anyone on the production crew still around? It would be fascinating to hear from the cameraman on the technical aspects of shooting those scenes (e.g. aerial shots and long shots along the shoreline).

Judi was styled as classic 80s soap heroine in that first scene.

 

I'd love to see something like this for the remote in Europe that ATWT did for the Frannie/Sabrina storyline but that would likely have been dependent on some public access program documenting this and I don't think there was such a thing in Europe in the 80s.

Local cable access in the NY area in the 80s — the font typical the spelling oh my. I thought the lead director Bruce Barry was still alive as I don’t recall any discussion of him not being and he has been in photos on social media when parts of the male cast got together. 
 

I never saw this before either so thank you for posting.
