    ITV (ended 1992)
    Welcome to the Van der Valk guide at TV.com. In his time with the Amsterdam Police, Commissaris Piet van der Valk has seen it all. His cynicism sometimes shocks even his assistant Johnny Kroon. Their caseload brings them into contact with the city's many subcultures from drug-users to sexual perverts. Van der Valk is known for his ability to break difficult cases by pursuing his famous hunches. However, his superior, Hoofdcommissaris Samson, is always more concerned with the political and public relations ramifications of van der Valk's investigations. The city meanwhile provides an attractive backdrop for the stories. The character of van der Valk was created by the author Nicolas Freeling in a popular series of novels, though none of the storylines in the televison series are directly based on the books. Van der Valk initially ran for two series, but was resurrected in 1977 by Thames Television's Euston Films subsidiary, shooting on location using 16mm colour film. A second revival followed in 1991. The theme tune, Eye Level, was very popular when the show was first broadcast, spending several weeks in the British music charts.moreless

    Anna Karenina is the television mini-series adaptation of the novel by Leo Tolstoy. The novel was published in installments from 1873 to 1877, and was regarded as a pinnacle of realist fiction. The epic saga of the 19th-century aristocracy shows love, marriage, heartbreak and tragedy. The story follows Anna Karenina (Nicola Pagett), a married woman who has an affair with a soldier. The Oblonsky Family is torn apart by adultery when Dolly Oblonskaya catches her husband Stiva having an affair with their children's former governess. Stiva's sister Anna Karenina (Nicola Pagett) comes to help mediate. The beautiful, young and energetic Anna seems to be held down by her passionless marriage to Karenin, a powerful older man, and falls in love with a dashing young soldier Count Vronsky (Stuart Wilson). As she pursues true love, scandal and tragedy ensue. The 10 part mini-series was directed by Basil Coleman, and was nominated for two Emmy Awards.moreless

    CBS (ended 1980)
    Barnaby Jones began as a mid-season replacement for CBS beginning on Sunday, January 28, 1973, and continued with a successful run until its final episode aired on Thursday, April 3, 1980. 178 color episodes were filmed in Hollywood. This series focused around a retired private detective, Barnaby Jones, who had passed his private investigation business to his son, Hal. When Hal was murdered while on a case, Barnaby came out of retirement to track down his son's killer. Hal's widow, Betty, worked with Barnaby as his invaluable assistant on cases. In the fall of 1976, Barnaby's cousin Monroe was murdered while in Los Angeles for the purpose of tracking down his partner's killer. This storyline served as the backdrop for the introduction of Monroe's son, law student Jedediah Romano Jones, who preferred to be called J.R. After the case was solved, J.R. remained in Los Angeles working for Barnaby while he studied law until the end of the series. Out of all of Quinn Martin's series, this one had the second-longest run. Only The F.B.I. had a longer run. Here is a list of time slots that Barnaby Jones held during its 7 1/2 year run: January 1973 to June 1974: Sundays from 9:30 P.M. to 10:30 P.M.

    Welcome to the Ellery Queen guide at tv.com. This is one of the classic TV whodunits -- with a twist. The show's format was such that the audience would see everything that the show's namesake character would see, including all of the clues, and then, right before the final scene started (you know... the one where all the suspects are brought into the room for the "YOU... killed the victim. And you did it because..." scene, the star (Ellery Queen, of course) would turn to the TV audience and state "Okay, you've got all the clues. Do you know who did it? I think I do. Can you guess?" And the audience had the chance to be part of the show. Quite unique and half the fun. For books and more information on this character, check out [url]http://www.elleryqueen.com[/url].

    This unsuccessful and now totally forgotten "family hour" drama was MTM's first 60-minute series. It focused on the assignments of photojournalist Pete Karras, who somewhat improbably moved around the U.S. in a custom-built motorhome complete with his two sons. (You'd think he's be beaten out by competitors who could fly to assignments without their families.) The premise was, of course, just an excuse for a disguised anthology drama like The Fugitive or Route 66, in which the main characters would enter a new town and a new dramatic situation each week.moreless

    ABC (ended 1955)
    The classic Walt Disney series featuring the life of Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier, starring Fess Parker (Daniel Boone) and Buddy Ebsen (Beverly Hillbillies, Barnaby Jones) as the legendary frontiersman Davy Crockett and his best friend, Georgie Russell.

    The series followed their adventures through the Indian Wars, Davy's tenure in Congress, travels down the Missisippi River, and the last stand at the Alamo.

    The five episodes of the series aired as segments of "Disneyland"; in 1954 and 1955. Later, they were re-edited and packaged into the theatrical releases Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier and Davy Crockett and the River Pirates. In 1989, Disney launched a revival series, with Tim Dunigan and Gary Grubbs. Though good in its own right, it never reached the popularity of the original Fess Parker episodes.

    The popularity of the shows made the "Ballad of Davy Crockett" a chart-topping single and inspired children across the country to sport coonskin caps.moreless
