by Arthur Hailey
[Starring] Albert Dekker and William Sylvester with Alan Gifford, Lloyd Reckord
See page 4

A small city hospital in America has, in the words of the Administrator, "fallen behind the times". But development is difficult, and one or two members of the staff are not receptive to the idea of change. Such a one is Dr. Pearson, the pathologist, a man with twenty-five years' service to his credit, but a man whose methods have not kept up with progress in his own field of medicine. The arrival at the hospital of the young and determined Dr. David Coleman sets the scene for a strong dramatic conflict.
At 8.30
