College Professor crime solver
24 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

James Whitmore starred as a college professor teaching criminology. together with Tony they would solve crimes out of the classroom and in the courtroom. It was a diagnosis murder type plot for its time. The crime solving was based on actual scientific principals. The episode I remember was a car accident and revolved around whether the car headlights were on or off when the accident occurred. The professor took several headlights into the lab and broke them before the were turned on,after they were turned on as controls to determine if the residue on the inside of the light would indicate if the lights were on or off when the accident occurred. Wish i could find this episode on DVD
