Chief of detectives Robert T. Ironside is shot down by a sniper’s bullet whilst vacationing at a remote cabin. Surviving the assassination attempt, Ironside is left paralysed from the waist down. Confined to a wheelchair, he becomes the head of his own special police unit, fighting crime with intelligence and action, aided by a crack team of investigators on the streets of San Francisco. From 1967-1975, Ironside confronted the hottest issues of its time – civil rights, drugs, sexual assault and terrorism – many of which are still relevant to this day, giving television its first disabled hero. Raymond Burr, fresh from 9 years as TV’s most famous lawyer, Perry Mason, shook the typecasting from his previous role and made Ironside an instant hit with audiences, running an incredible 8 years.
