Description by

"The Medic" television series was one of America's first "doctor dramas." When it ran in network prime time in 1954, it 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.

Episode #1 - Mercy Wears An Apron: A public health nurse works overtime to provide physical and emotional therapy to a paralyzed actor suffering from depression.

Episode #2 - My Child's Keeper: An unsupervised little girl plays with a cigarette lighter, causing a deadly fire that leaves her and a younger child severely burned.

Episode #3 - The Laughter And The Weeping: Condemned to a life of pro wrestling by a grossly misshapen nose, a brilliant scholar struggles to support his crippled father. Dr. Styner suggests plastic surgery.

Episode #4 - To The Great, A Most Seldom Gift: A salesman is obsessed with getting a long awaited promotion, developing a serious ulcer as a result.
