Growing up in the US during the late 19050's early 60's I watched over half of these. We did not have Brian Henderson's Bandstand but did have an American version. Surprisingly similar but the performers are different.

The 1960's Perry Mason series is like a comic book on film. The books are well written and the screenwriters do a good job of edited down the plot into one hour. The new version suffers from this centuries reliance on visual and writing techniques that do not advance the thoughts, just the nerves.
