Kraft Suspense Theatre
Kraft Suspense Theatre was filmed in Hollywood and once a month was preempted to allow a special appearance by Perry Como's Kraft Music Hall. The plots revolved around murder, intrigue, terror, and danger. There was also Kraft Mystery Theatre which ran from June 14, 1961 until September 25, 1963 and this is sometimes confused with the Kraft Suspense Theatre. The shows are totally distinct, however. KST gave birth to two more shows (or spin-offs): The initial two-parter, "The Case Against Paul Ryker", served as the pilot for the short-lived show, 'Court-Martial', in 1965. And "Rapture at Two Forty" presented in April 1965 was the pilot for the later series 'Run For Your Life' that ran for three seasons.
Set in the legendary frontier town of Kalgoorlie follows the cop as the deal with disturbances through the town, and getting up close with a town that is rife with money, murder, miners, hookers, gold-theft, crooks, outlaw bikers and even Friday night punch-ups.
The plot focuses on the investigation of Rocco Schiavone, assistant chief unsympathetic, from gruff ways, which for political reasons is transferred from Rome, his hometown in Aosta.

The series was a soap opera, dealing with the lives of ordinary people, living and working in or around an average lakótelep (Gazdagréti microdistrict, a socialist housing estate with several thousand flats in Budapest, built in the 1980s). Its characters were explored, over time, in equal depth: ranging from elderly pensioners, busy middle aged professionals, up-and-coming young people, and children growing into their teens.
