The theme music and its variations was recorded in London at the CTS Studios in Bayswater, using around 50 musicians from the Ted Heath and London Philharmonic Orchestra. The Conductor was Harry Rabinowitz. Sound Engineer was Eric Tomlinson. All 120 episodes were scored with the same 'library music' that was recorded at the start of production and not tailored to specific scenes in the show. See more »

Simply... the greatest drama in the history of television. The prototype of many other shows (the invaders, run, buddy, run, etc...) David Jensen does a excellent job as the doctor wrongly accused of his wife's murder. Barry Morse never received the honors due him for playing the "antagonist" Lt. Gerard. For the run of the show, they managed to maintain a high quality of writers and directors. I viewed every show from 1963 to "the judgement" This showed regularly featured talented actors as guess stars before they became stars. The show also managed to handle social issues of the times but was more geared to exploring human nature in all it's facets... that's one of the things that made it so great. Even if you were not concerned about the hunt for the one armed man... the indivual stories themselves were great.
