A soap classic following the much-married Jo and her family over four decades of divorce, drunks and other crises. Known mostly for leading lady Mary Stuart, who stuck with the show for the entire 35-year run and became the first daytime star to win an Emmy, the serial also had daring (for its time) plots involving abortion and date rape. `Search' was the longest running soap until `Guiding Light' passed it in 1986.
