Today In History

The TV movie 'Marcus Welby' was seen on ABC-TV. It was later turned into a series.

As most medical dramas of the day, the plots often concerned a professional conflict between well-meaning physicians. Here, Dr. Welby's "Robert Young' unorthodox way of treating patients was pitted against the more strait-laced methods of Dr. Steven Kiley, James Brolin. The catch with this particular program was that the roles were reversed in that Dr. Kiley was much younger than Dr. Welby. The opening credits of each episode reminded viewers of the generation gap between the two doctors, Welby driving his sedan and Kiley riding a motorcycle. Welby had served in the US Navy as a doctor during the war, and was a widower.
