    I just acquired a copy of this episode under the alternative title, Children of Calamity. Having seen it, I have to say that it is once more evidence that Slattery's People was one of the the most under-rated dramas in television history. An very nice couple (Burt Brinkerhoff and Davy just adopted an Korean war baby from a well-intentioned private agency, run by an idealistic former missionary, ( Larry Gates). However, the official state agency, and its seemingly cold - hearted representative, (Lee Grant) wants to shut down the private agency and take away the child. Slattery's intervenes on their behalf, annd then finds something out. I cannot give the twist way. i will only say it was well written, superbly acted and a gripping piece of one hour drama.

    If the other episodes were all of this quality, the show was magnificent indeed. However, we will probably never know, as CBS Paramount STILL refuses to release it on DVD. This , to be honest, is utter stupidity.
