Pilot for sci-fi detective series "Search." Hugh O'Brian as Lockwood, a high-tech private eye, was outfitted with two electronic implants (one to hear what was said at HQ and a dental contact he could bite to communicate with HQ--one bite for yes and two bites for no) and a button-sized "scanner" that combined a micro-miniaturized television camera that could also see in infrared spectrum, microphone, medical sensors, and transmitter, putting him in constant contact with a room full of experts monitoring his actions and vital signs and supplying him with encyclopedic information. Burgess Meredith as Cameron, Lockwood's "head kibitzer." Story involves missing diamonds. Series plots tended to be "missing object(s) or person(s)"-type detective stories, rather than murder "whodunits" or "howcatchems."

, was an avid collector of diamonds and other precious gems. Nazi Minister of Armaments, Albert Speer, wrote in his memoirs about Goering's habit of filling his coat pockets with precious gems and often time running his hands through the gems. See more

Probe One, Probe Control. Vice Consul safe unharmed and on his way to neutral territory. Recovery mission accomplished.
We copy you Lockwood. You're lucky you're not back there face down in the gutter, but you're operating under severe strain so we'll overlook the high risk factor and call it exceptional service.
Which means I'm entitled to a few days off all expenses.
