You're welcome!

 

 

Here are the dates I did up to what was posted the other day. A lot more has been posted since but I can later help if needed.

 

 

 

I got stuck at clip 1999 #62 (partial).  It's only 9 minutes long, and it comes after June 25 but before July 19 lol.

What a great year 2020 has been for classic Y&R content! Not sure if this was posted already but a YouTube channel uploaded the October 1997 episode in which Nina pulls a gun on Tricia and Ryan:

 

 

(This is definitely here already) "FYI" re-uploaded Nina's emmy episode from 1991:

This has been a great year! New stuff almost every day. That first episode is a repost of October 3, 1997 which I posted on YouTube and the Vault, from a VHS from @Y&R fan of oldies (strangely, it got blocked on YT from my channel, but somehow it appears on this person's channel?) Reminder, if any of you all have VHS tapes PM me and I will upload them for you.

For such a popular soap Y&R has always had a horrible output online. We really have been spoiled this past year or two. We’ve seen stuff from the 70s and 80s in particular that we never thought we’d see. Every year I hope it’s the year someone does something official for soaps streaming and I’m again going to hope for that in 2021. I mean we did finally get The Doctors app so maybe we will get lucky. I’m hopeful for Y&R that the high ratings for the classics leads them to doing something on CBS All Access.

Sadly, most daytime soaps have a horrible digital and streaming presence. Little to no way to access their library of episodes.

The New York Public Library is looking at ways to make their dance collection more accessible, via digital platform. Certain choreographers have already started this, so that dance scholars, students, teachers and choreographers can access the performances and rehearsals, workshops without having to physically come into the library at Lincoln Center. Many of these performances stretch back all the way back to the 40s, 50s, perhaps even earlier.

If the dance world, which was never the huge money maker that daytime dramas were can undertake this effort, how can the likes of P&G not be able to put even some measure of that effort?

Unlike Dark Shadows and the Doctors, Y&R still airs, which may complicate matters.

 

Also, unlike primetime soaps that likely have some type of syndication deal, I doubt most daytime soaps even considered such a thing. Soaps with relatively short runs should've considered this.

At the very least special DVD releases should have been seriously considered. 

 

The only short run soap I could even seen succeeding in a syndication would be Sunset Beach but that has longgggg past it’s time. I remember Sci-Fi tried to rerun Passions but it flopped badly.
