      days); it was also a loosely derived spin-off from "Another World";

      A mid-run time change of producers, a plot course correction 
      and a different THEME didn't help -- its  ratings sank after 
      two valiant years...
      Bob Israel was President of "Score Productions" in New York,
      who often made "work for hire" arrangements with composers.]
