Trivia

The show is particularly poorly-preserved in the archives: although the first season survives intact, there are very large gaps in the known holdings. Of the 191 editions, it is thought that only 56 are still known to exist; of these some installments no longer survive in their original format (e.g. there are only monochrome film prints of two color videotaped stories). Only seven of the later episodes exist in color. See more »

Wonderful medical series
28 December 2006 | by breeselynneSee all my reviews

I first saw this when I was a trainee nurse in Timaru Public Hospital in the 60s.I think I learned more watching the series than I did in the class room!There was a particularly memorable episode in which Dr Cameron is poisoned from mouldy Rye and hallucinates.The three principal actors are consistently brilliant and the memory of this series is so strong that I have been unable to watch the remake.If you can get to see any episodes don't miss them! The tension between Cameron and Findlay over the emerging new science of Psychiatry is wonderful, as the series is set before and then during WW2. The title music and the accents and voices of the principals are firmly in my memory although I have not see an episode for 30yrs.This is classic BBc and as relevant today as it was 40yrs ago.
