Feature Presentation

This week we have a special treat for you.  This is the original pilot episode for Emergency! that was broadcast before the popular series began its first regular season.  Until recently, this video has been rarely seen sitnce its initial broadcast on January 20, 1972.  In addition to setting the scene for the upcoming series, it correctly addresses the conflict within the medical profession at the time as to the wisdom of establishing the Paramedic program by training firefighters instead of medical professionals.  So enjoy this special presentation (and thanks to Carmine S. for catching this for us):

    Thank you for posting this, and thank you to whoever made it possible (I had heard the pilot was in the middle of a rights battle lasting years). I’ve seen most of the episodes at least once, but this was my first shot at the pilot.
    Thanks, guys!
