The show follows a crime, usually adapted from current headlines, from two separate vantage points. The first half of the show concentrates on the investigation of the crime by the police, the second half follows the prosecution of the crime in court.
Jesse L. Martin,
With his rumpled raincoat, ever-present cigar, bumbling demeanour and Sherlock Holmesian powers of deduction, disarmingly polite homicide detective Lieutenant Columbo took on some of the most cunning murderers in Los Angeles, most of whom made one fatal, irrevocable mistake: underestimating his investigative genius.
Host Robert Stack presides over an investigation into unsolved mysteries ranging from murders to UFO sightings. Through reenactments and interviews, viewers are presented with the known facts of each case. Anyone with additional information is then urged to contact the show's producers via a toll-free telephone number. Written by

Although the series was still doing well in the Nielsen ratings, NBC canceled it at the end of the 1996-97 season, citing a desire for television shows designed to attract younger audiences. See more »

This program is about unsolved mysteries. Whenever possible, the actual family members and police officials have participated in recreating the events. What you are about to see is not a news broadcast.

This was one good television shows in My opinion. It was hosted by the legendary Robert Stack. He hosted it quite nicely! The show was about many true mysteries such as disappearances and among other things. One particular episode that was very good was about the mysteries of the Bermuda Triangle. It was incredible that so many planes of all kinds and boats and vessels disappeared and that these planes and boats have never returned and that this strange phenomenon is still happening today. There were also some quite scary ghost stories as well in other episodes. If this series still airs today make sure you watch it if you are a fan of mysteries because it was a great show! I recommend it!
