I was 7 when this show started airing and could not wait to get home from school to watch it whenever it was on. I am watching reruns now on DECADES tv and am as awe as I was way back then. This show was very much ahead of its time and I credit it with being the inspiration for my adult life spent in the medical field. We would not see the likes of this again until ER or Quincy. In re-watching in 2019, (and thank Heavens DVDs are now available with the episodes that can be found), I find the show still to be informative, instructive and one that dealt with hard issues, especially for the era - infertility, infant mortality, leprosy and its stigma even though it is known not to be communicable, euthanasia, etc. I was very surprised at the almost scholarly level of the episode about infertility - with reproduction explained in ways that most could understand without its being technical or raw. Richard Boone was amazing in his narration, and did appear in a few episodes. All these years later, I have held memory of the theme song - Blue Star - so beautiful. Also, the opening comments always give me chills: "Guardian of birth, healer of the sick, comforter of the aging; and the qualities of the worthy physician are three: the eye of an eagle, the heart of a lion, the hand of a woman." I gave this a 10, not only for my memory of it but it seeing the episodes all over again. Beautiful, informative show. It is a rare doctor who comes to the home any more but how wonderful those were who did.
