It really depends on which specific genre of Drama you're

referring to.

For instance the longest running Police Drama

is Germany's Tatort which has been on the

air since 1970 & still airs to this day (07/2015).

The longest running Medical Drama is the U.K.'s

is Casualty which began in 1986 and still

airs today (07/2015).

It would seem the longest running Historical

Drama is Japan's Zenigata Heiji

which (as far as I can tell) aired from 1952 to at least
