      1. It ran from 1956 to 84 on CBS (until 1975) and ABC. The plan was to make it a daytime version of Perry Mason, but Erle Stanley Gardner didn’t like the idea of giving Perry a love interest and pulled his support. They worked things out and Perry, Della, Paul, Lt. Tragg, and Hamilton Burger became a primetime staple.

      1. It is. It’s great for teaching editing, as well. I ask people to write the plot of a favourite book or film, about half a page. Then I get them to reduce it to two small paragraphs, then a paragraph. Then they write a haiku without me telling them it’s a haiku; then a piku.

        By the end, they have two poems they didn’t know they were writing, and they’ve had a lesson in paring their writing down to the essentials.
