| He's the Bees' Knees
This is at least a bit more original than some I've watched recently. It focuses on the curative efforts of an old man, Edmund Gwynn, who seems able to treat third degree burns and radiation effects. It turns out that he has developed a relationship with bees. He uses the royal jelly and its properties to an extent that seems beyond science. A fairly young doctor and his wife talk to this man. He is suffering from a debilitating hand condition which is quickly cured. There is an unfortunate wrench in the works but this is what makes the episode more realistic. Edmund Gwynn is always a delight with the sparkle in his eyes and his strange idiosyncrasies. One of the better efforts.
