Drama 

Medic was an American medical drama that aired on NBC beginning in 1954. Medic was television's first doctor drama to focus attention on medical procedures.

Created by its principal writer James E. Moser, Medic tried to create realism (City Hospital and The Doctor had not) which would typify medical shows from then on. Moser had previously written for the radio shows Dragnet and Dr. Kildare.

Medic episodes were introduced and narrated by Richard Boone, playing Dr. Konrad Styner who sometimes also appeared in the stories. Fifty-nine segments aired from September 1954 to November 1956.

The series was introduced each week by theme music written by Victor Young. Eventually, with lyrics added by Edward Heyman, the song became popular under the title "Blue Star."
