Night And Day (ITV1 2001-2003, Lysette Anthony, Joe McGann)



A UK produced daytime soap  about a couple of families with intertwined lives. Often slightly surreal with fantasy sequences, the main story was about 16 year old Jane Harper who went missing after the first week of episodes and was thereafter only really seen in flashback sequences. Initially it was shown at 5pm thrice-weekly with a late night omnibus edition that contained more adult material (although this only really amounted to mild swearing).

After a few months with poor ratings the daytime showing was dropped and shown in a late night 60 minute slot only – despite this it was never really made as a post-watershed programme that reflected the late night timeslot (usually about midnight). It came to a close with the final episode on 5 June 2003 with the plotlines resolved by moving forward 4 years to see how things had turned out. The theme song was sung by Kylie Minogue.
