Premise: This drama about a father-son legal team was one of the most acclaimed series of the '60s (it won its best-program Emmy category three of its four seasons). The series tackled such controversial issues as abortion, euthanasia and the blacklist, and throughout its run there was a seriousness of purpose. As series creator and executive story editor Reginald Rose (who wrote some of its most notable episodes), put it: `The law is the subject of our programs. Not crime, not mystery.'
