BURBANK, Calif., March 18 (UPI) -- SOAPnet says it will mark the 50th anniversary of "General Hospital" by airing a 50-episode marathon of the upstate New York-set, daytime drama series.

The run of classic episodes will start March 29 and wrap April 1.

"The marathon kicks off with the very first episode from 1963, and will include shows from every decade. The stunt leads up to the very special 50th anniversary episode of 'General Hospital,' airing on Monday, April 1 on ABC," SOAPnet said in a news release.

"The marathon will cover all your favorite characters, couples and story lines with such themes as romance -- Luke and Laura's wedding, Frisco and Felicia's wedding, Luke and Laura's dance at Wyndham's, Lucky and Liz's first kiss; heartbreak -- Stone dies, Sonny leaves Brenda at the altar, BJ dies/Maxie's heart transplant; action-adventure -- Ice Princess, the hostage crisis, the hotel fire; and shocking bombshells -- Elizabeth finds Carly in the panic room, AJ discovers he's Michael's father, Jason's car accident. ... It is an extraordinary marathon, 50 years in the making."
