Originally aired on Valentine's Day 1955, this episode of the TV show "Medic" owed its existence to the U.S. Government's Office of Civil Defense and its Cold War push to inform the American people about the threat of nuclear war. Created by James E. Moser (best known for his writing work on Dragnet), the TV show Medic (1954-1956) presented realistic hospital-based medical stories. In this episode an atomic bomb blast thrust star Richard Boone (of Have Gun—Will Travel fame) into the aftermath of a nuclear bomb blast.
