Olivia's Scenes from Guiding Light: 2005 - Feb 2007
Olivia and/or Natalia's Scenes from Guiding Light: Mar - Sept 2007
Olivia, Natalia, and Emma had their first scenes together on Oct 29,2007. This was Jacqueline Tsirkin's first episode as Emma. In my not so humble opinion, this is the official start of Otalia, however, they had lots of hurdles to overcome before they found their way. Isn't that what the fun is all about?
Olivia and Natalia's Scenes:
Oct 2007 - April 2008
May - Dec 2008
Jan - Sept 2009
New clips are being added daily to continue to flesh out this story. I'll keep adding them and tweaking these playlists as long as new material is posted.
Cheers and Happy Viewing! I hope you love these two as much as I do!
Guiding Light Full Episodes

June - Dec 2007
Jan - June 2008
July - Oct 2008
Note: It looks like Telenext Media has quit posting full episodes of Guiding Light. Although the show continued until Sept of 09, their episodes stop on Oct 31, 2008.
Other related lists:
Interestingly enough, while searching out clips of Olivia, I fell in love with other GL characters. The lists below tell some of the story of some of those characters, most notably, Dinah Marler, Lillian Raines, Vanessa Chamberlain, Alexandra Spaulding, and Blake Thorpe. I will continue to develop new playlists and post new clips of these characters. Again, I am totally indebted to those who recorded and uploaded these wonderful old episodes. I'm hoping GL lives on through those of us who are fans of the show as a whole.
I'm reorganizing these lists so they are in a more chronological order. While these older lists may focus on a character or pairing, they also incorporate some of the other characters I've grown to love. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
For now, I'm starting in 1992 with Blake and Ross. Sherry Stringfield originated the role of Blake, then Liz Keifer took it over. What a great core couple GL had in these two. B&R 1993 starts with Maureen Bauer's death. I just had to incorporate that well-loved character into these clips. Also getting some screen time in these clips are Holly Lindsey, Roger Thorpe, and Ed Bauer.
Another favorite character is Alexandra Spaulding. GL was so good at developing complicated flawed characters and Alex is one of the best. This is the start of Marj Dusay's interpretation of this wonderful character. These clips start in 1993 when Alexandra returns after spending time in Indonesia and continue with the wonderful "Who Shot Roger?" storyline.
The aftermath from "Who Shot Roger?" devastated Vanessa. She went away to the Lake Country to heal and Matt/Vanessa were born. I love the romance of this couple. These clips begin the Summer of 1994.
Skip forward to the adorable Lillian/Buzz. I decided to do this playlist after reading Tina Sloan's (Lillian Raines) book, Changing Shoes. I recommend it ( the playlist and the book) to everyone!
One of my favorite couples in 2008-9 was Dinah and Shayne. If you liked them too and want to see their relationship, this playlist is for you: Dinah and Shayne This couple met in Europe in late 2008. They just seemed to compliment each other and even each other out.
Josh was Olivia's first and, in my humble opinion, best husband. I really liked their friendship at the end of GL. Here's a little relationship study: Josh and Olivia - 2009
Days of Our Lives:
Before Crystal Chappell created Olivia Spencer, she played Dr. Carly Manning opposite Peter Reckell's Bo Brady on Days of Our Lives. Here are some of the best scenes from that romantic story. I tend to be partial to all things Mexico, however, my friends from TPATs like Cabins, Rooftops and (of all things) Viruses. WTF??
