The medical profession is well represented on television, with a number of drama and comedy programs utilizing the surroundings of a hospital or doctor's office as the basis for a show. MEDIC was one of the first such shows to appear on American television, making its debut in 1954. Documenting the lives of a group of doctors, the show was unflinching in its graphic portrayal of the often gruesome events they had to face on a daily basis. Each show was introduced by Doctor Konrad Styner (Richard Boone), and dedicated to those who work in the profession. This release includes four episodes from the show, "General Practitioner," "The Wild Intruder," "My Brother Joe," and "Break Through The Bars." Notable guest turns come from Charles Bronson and Lee J. Cobb, who make fleeting appearances in episodes 3 and 4 respectively.
