Summer Desire was the name of the first and only night-time special aired under the Another World soap opera banner. Touted as special event programming, the hour-long episode aired just before the Daytime Emmy Awards on June 23, 1992. Unlike other soaps, which also aired one-off specials at night, the Another World special followed existing storylines, in the hopes that viewers tuning in early for the Daytime Emmys would be intrigued with what they saw, and by extension, would watch the show in the afternoon. The universal theme was love, and the stories followed four existing couples in the series. To appeal to many demographics, thirtyish couple Cass and Frankie were featured, as well as twentysomethings Ryan and Vicky and Jake and Paulina. Teen supercouple Dean and Jenna received the lion's share of the story in the special episode, as a party was being thrown in honor of his new album. On the show, Dean was a budding singer, and an album was produced. One of his songs, Ladykiller, became wildly popular and was played on the Times Square Jumbotron in the special episode.
That's My Desire was an Australian television game show which ran from 1958 to 1960 on Melbourne station HSV-7. Hosted by Danny Webb, it was a panel game. The half-hour series changed time-slot several times. At one point it aired at 4:45PM, it later aired at 3:00PM, then at 4:00PM, and finally at 2:30PM. In the episode aired 28 September 1959, the guests included Guy Doleman, Diana Davidson, John Grey and Aileen Britton, while the panel consisted of Bambi Smith, John Frith, Jocelyn Terry and Hugh Wills. There is no information available as to whether any of the episodes exist as kinescope recordings. Game shows were generally considered disposable by Australian broadcasters in the 1950s and 1960s. Reportedly no kinescopes or video-tapes exist of HSV-7's version of Tell the Truth, while footage does exist of Lady for a Day, making it difficult to know for certain whether anything remains of That's My Desire.
