Wow, good question. Stuff like talk shows last for decades of course.. but in their actual current configurations even those fail this test. (in the US anyway)

I think in the UK the longest runner is our Brian's favourite, The Sky At Night. But that wasn't your question.. sorry ;)

I read somewhere a while ago that As The World Turns (yes that horrible soap) is running for more than 50 years!! So that counts as '90, '80, '70, '60 and a part from the '50's, lol.

I guess that getting all the seasons in DVD will be quite expensive! :-)

Uhh...most soap operas have been on longer than the 80's. The Young and the Restless started in the 70's, I think.

Heh, I love how Home and Away came about from Channel 7 losing Neighbours. Not that I was alive to see that but...IT'S WHAT I'VE BEEN TOLD!

I love the English obsession with those two shows. I remember when my cousins came from Mannnnnnnnchester and they absolutely screamed at the TV when so and so did [event x] to Thingermajig. Strange kids. No wonder one is back in ol' Blighty and the other is floating around New Zealand.

They're the only two I can think of!

Mad TV came out in the mid/late 90's.
