2. GENREIn Soaps there are various genres that directors try to get across to the audience. Here are some for example: Romance, Thriller, Conflict, Love, Sexuality, Fights.The genre of a scene chosen chooses whats going to happen in a episode. The whole episode is chosen around the genre. By Chloe White 3. CONVENTIONS OF SOAP OPERAS I think the biggest audience for soap operas is women aged 20-40 mainly because the time they are shown and the storylines that the use. These early radio series were broadcast in weekday daytime slots, usually fivedays a week, when most listeners would be housewives this was to target the right sort of audience they are trying to attract.By Tori OMara 4.
