Description by OLDIES.com:

When it ran in network TV's prime time in 1954, "Medic" was a television milestone. A pioneering, innovative and often controversial show, known for its realistic and honest portrayal of the medical profession, it featured well documented case histories "dedicated to the profession of medicine and to the men and women who labor in its cause." The four "Medic" episodes here, each one introduced by the stern yet friendly face of Doctor Konrad Styner (Richard Boone), are representative of the well-researched style that helped lead the way for so many of today's doctor and hospital-based programs.

DON'T COUNT THE STARS: A promising singer on the verge of stardom has his career destroyed when he is diagnosed with throat cancer.

THE REACH OF A GIANT - Part 1: Crippled with a rare spine disease, James Martin leaves his beloved bride, rather than have her share his horrible fate.

THE REACH OF A GIANT - Part 2: Advances in medicine allow James Martin to undergo risky new spine surgery that, if successful, could give him a new lease on life.

THIS STRANGE ENDING: Physicians recount the tale of a beautiful gifted young ballerina, tragically struck down by cancer at the age of nineteen.
