Testimony of Two Men

eaton director william ferrier

(Syndicated, 5/9/1977 to 5/23/1977, 3 Parts, 120 mins each, 6 hours). The initial production in an off network project, Operation Prime Time, started by a group of independent stations pooling their resources for high-quality drama to compete with the networks themselves. This ambitious three-part, six-hour post-Civil War costume saga, based on the 1968 Taylor Caldwell novel, intertwines several stories of lust, power, greed and murder as it tells of “two surgeons’ passion for their work and their women” over a 36-year period. An Emmy Award nomination went to costumer Bill Jobe for his stunning antebellum creations.
