Tate was a rather unique western series, unfortunately short-lived. Shown as "The Kraft Summer Theater Presentation of Tate", starring David McLean as (believe it or not) a one-armed bounty hunter!!!

The series was unique (at that time) in being shot on tape, not film, with camera work in the "live" style of television. Overall, the impression was that the show was "live", but was somewhat "smeared" due to the taping process.
