Trivia

NBC Programming replaced the daytime series "Bright Promise" (1969-1972) with "Return To Peyton Place" (1972-1974). The 20th Century Fox night-time NBC series "Peyton Place" was anticipated to distinguish the highly popular series for daytime programming. "Return To Peyton Place" replaced the "Bright Promise" time slot, as well as following the same daily taping schedule, afternoon-night rehearsal and tape, on Stage 9, NBC Burbank Color Studios. The other half of Studio 9 was used in the mornings for "Days of Our Lives" production. New RCA Color Cameras replaced camera equipment in the studio upgrade with the new Peyton Place series, improving transmission quality. See more »

A Great Show!
22 March 2007 | by dapala-1See all my reviews

This was one of the great soaps of the 70's. It ended way to soon. I was a fan of the nighttime version & I thought the daytime version picked up beautifully where nighttime left off. I especially liked the storyline where Betty kept seeing Martin Peyton in the house, it was creepy, yet fun. Like I said, it ended way to soon, I would love to see it again. I would like to see nighttime version on DVD also! I still remember the final scene with Allsion & Rodney together the way they should have always been. Can somebody refresh my memory about whether Martin Peyton came back at the very end or not? Also, what was the storyline involving Monica Bell & DB Bentley?
