The fights between upper-class Liz and her middle-class in-laws started the show.

Set in the fictional town of Bay City, the series originally opened with announcer Bill Wolff intoning its epigram, "We do not live in this world alone, but in a thousand other worlds," which Phillips said represented the difference between "the world of events we live in, and the world of feelings and dreams that we strive for." Another World focused less on the conventional drama of domestic life as seen in other soap operas, and more on exotic melodrama between families of different classes and philosophies.

In 1964, Another World was the first soap opera to talk about abortion when such subjects were taboo.

As the '60s went on, the lives and loves of Jim's children, Russ (Sam Groom), Alice (Jacqueline Courtney), and Pat (Susan Trustman), took center stage.

Jim's wife, Mary (Virginia Dwyer), usually intervened when there was a crisis, which was most of the time.

After opening with a death in the core Matthews family, Irna planned to follow up with an out-of-wedlock pregnancy, a septic abortion, a shooting, and murder trial. Potter explained, "Irna just didn't want to take a chance on waiting for the ratings.

She felt that with this kind of showy story she could build an audience more quickly." The first episode was the aftermath of the funeral of wealthy William Matthews.

However, attorney Mitchell Dru (played by Geoffrey Lumb), who had previously been a character on As the World Turns, did become a character on Another World during the early years of the program (1964-1971).

And two characters from another CBS soap, Guiding Light—attorney Mike Bauer and his daughter Hope—did cross over in 1966, remaining for a year before returning to GL.

On November 22, 1963, a group of executives (including Executive Producer Allen M.

Potter and director Tom Donovan) met at the Young & Rubicam ad agency in New York to discuss the show's opening story, the death of William Matthews, when they heard the news of another death in Dallas: the assassination of President Kennedy.

His ideas included pushing the Matthews family into the background and introducing the Gregory family; however, the Gregory family came and went fairly quickly.
