  Soap opera   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
The Soap opera form first developed on American radio in the 1920s, and expanded into television starting in the 1940s, and is normally shown during the daytime, hence the alternative name, daytime serial.
The term "soap opera" originated from the fact that when these serial dramas were aired on daytime radio, the commercials aired during the shows were largely aimed at housewives.
Soaps aired during the golden age of radio usually used organs to produce most of their music (because they were cheaper than full-blown orchestras).

Perhaps when mobile TV gains wider audiences, the mobile stream will be tweaked with larger fonts and graphics, he said, but those would be minor editing changes.
Mobile TV had just appeared on the TV industry's radar, but all of the talk was about repurposed content — clips drawn from existing TV shows that would use the phone as a way to promote the Fox network lineup.
