Medic was an American medical drama that aired on NBC beginning in 1954. Medic was television's first doctor drama to focus attention on medical procedures.

Contents

Created by its principal writer James E. Moser, Medic tried to create realism (The Doctor and City Hospital had not) which would typify medical shows from then on. Moser had previously written for the radio shows Dragnet and Dr. Kildare. He went on to write the television series Ben Casey.

Synopsis

Medic episodes were introduced and narrated by Richard Boone, playing Dr. Konrad Styner who sometimes also appeared in the stories. Fifty-nine segments aired from September 1954 to November 1956.

The series was introduced each week by theme music written by Victor Young. Eventually, with lyrics added by Edward Heyman, the song became popular under the title "Blue Star."

DVD release

On November 15, 2011, Timeless Media Group released Medic- The Groundbreaking Hospital Series on DVD in Region 1 for the first time. The 6-disc set features 44 of the 59 episodes of the series as these are the only episodes for which Timeless was able to obtain the rights. This is believed to be due to only 44 of the prints being salvageable.
