When I was going to school at the University of Texas, ABC used to have a guy named Dr. Red Duke, who was also from UT and who did health segments on the nightly news. Finding a quick way to turn someone’s life into a weekly drama, ABC turned Red Duke’s life into a vehicle for Dennis Weaver. Buck James split his time between putting people back together at Holloman Medical Center and being a dad to his kids on his ranch.
