Drama series. Richard Kimble is forced to go on the run when he is believed to be responsible for the murder of his wife. Kimble goes in search of the one armed man he believes really committed the crime. In the final two part episode Kimble tracked down the one armed man and proved his innocence. At the time this show was probably the most popular on TV.

In the mid 1990’s a big screen version was made with Harrison Ford in the lead role and then in 2000 a lacklustre revival aired with Tim Daly as Kimble.
