Scarlett Hill

1 9 6 2 – 1 9 6 4 (Canada)
30 minute episodes

Scarlett Hill was the first daytime soap opera produced for Canadian television, although it was based upon an American radio drama created by Robert and Kathleen Lindsay.

The series focused on the residents of the Russell Boarding House in Scarlett Hill, New York, and was structured in blocks of five episodes (stories which started on Monday strove toward culmination on Friday to make way for a new family in town and a new narrative block the following week) which aired on CBC-TV each weekday at 4 pm.

Widow Kate Russell (Beth Lockerbie) was the proprietress. Other original regular characters included her rebellious teenage daughter Ginny (Lucy Warner) and Janice Turner (Suzanne Bryant), a young girl residing there.

The series was syndicated to the United Kingdom, Australia and the US and ran until 1964.
