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 - General Practitioner: Doctor Terrence Canfield is a family physician who tries to balance his own troubled marriage with the many demands and needs of his patients.Episode 2 - The Wild Intruder: Just a week before her wedding, a young woman is diagnosed with breast cancer and must undergo surgery immediately. Her physical well-being and her depressed mental state must both be treated by a team of medical specialists.Episode 3 - My Brother Joe: After an automobile accident leaves a 10 year old boy in a coma, a neurologist (Charles Bronson) and an expert group of specialistsassess his brain damage while his family tries to deal with the guilt and anger.Episode 4 - Break Through the Bars: Henry Fisher (Lee J. Cobb), a 44 year old assistant bank cashier who lives at home with his sister and enjoys a rather quiet and routine life, begins to exhibit some bizarre behavior and soon becomes a candidate for electroshock therapy.
