Young Dr Malone

1 9 5 8 – 1 9 6 3 (USA)

Set in fictional Denison, Maryland, this daytime serial from NBC (adapted from a popular radio serial of the 1940s) focused on the father and (adopted) son team of doctors Jerry (the original “young” Dr Malone) and David Malone, who practised at Valley Hospital.

Young Dr Malone was notable for its use of actual medical crises and lighthearted humour, both of which were generally absent in late-50’s serials.

The series was finally laid to rest on 1 April 1963 – a victim of dwindling ratings – after almost 30 years on radio and television.
