The Guiding Light began as a radio drama 75 years ago. On TV, it takes place in the fictional Midwestern town of Springfield. In its early years the stories centered on the middle class Bauer family, but later the wealthy Spauldings, Chamberlains, and Lewises, along with the working class Reardons and others, took their own places of prominence, though the Bauers remained the heart of the show.

[show]Many episodes of this show and other daytime TV shows are believed to be lost forever. It was live until the 1960s, and many episodes prior to that exist as kine-scopes (videotape was not invented until 1956). Procter and Gamble Productions did not begin archiving its shows until the late 1970s, believing there was no use for them after their initial airing and therefore not worth preserving. They simply re-used the original tapes.
- Due to Kristen Vigard falling ill, Elizabeth Berridge played the part of Morgan Richards in this episode.
