12 O’clock High chronicled the adventures of the men of the 918th Bombardment Group of the US Eighth Air Force.


First commanded by irascible General Frank Savage (Robert Lansing, pictured at right) and later by Colonel Joe Gallagher (Paul Burke) – the son of a Pentagon General – the Group was stationed in England and flew long-range bombing missions into German-occupied Europe.

The series was originally shot and screened in black and white but made the move to colour for the third season in the fall of 1966.
