Not to be confused with the big screen Bruce Willis movie of the same name, The Sixth Sense starred Gary Collins as Dr Michael Rhodes, a parapsychologist who worked at a major university.

Each episode of the ABC series featured stories about ghosts or ESP and how the good Doctor and his assistant Nancy (Catherine Ferrar) worked to solve mysteries that centred around these events.

The series was later shown in syndication with Rod Serling’s Night Gallery. Both shows were badly edited down to 30 minutes for this venture.
