Dr Finlay's Casebook 16 August 1962

Dr Finlay's Casebook was opened for the first time on 16 August 1962. It was written by A J Cronin, based on his stories The Adventures of a Black Bag. In contrast to other medical dramas of the period, it was set in a time before the foundation of the National Health Service, in the fictional Scottish settlement of Tannochbrae. The sense of time and place was reinforced by exterior scenes shot in rural Scotland, and by the distinctive accents of the actors.
