9/5/1971 NBC Mystery Movie premieres

September 5, 1971.  NBC tries something new: a rotating "wheel" of 90-minute crime stories.  The original trio were all classics: Columbo, McCloud, and McMillan and Wife.  Over the next five years the show changed days, lengths, spun off a clone, and added other series.  Some highlights included, Quincy ME, Banacek, Lanigan's Rabbi, and Hec Ramsey.
