That hipster ring special agent Hugh Lockwood wears? It's a camera, transmitting image and sound of his surroundings. It's also a scanner, detecting telltale changes in pulse or other biometric readings of himself and the people around him. The ring and more electronic devices - some embedded - keep Lockwood linked with Probe Control, where experts and banks of computers provide instant mission-critical warnings, intel, even language translations. Hugh O'Brian portrays Lockwood and Burgess Meredith is his mission director in Probe, a telefilm that has Lockwood on a quest to recover priceless diamonds lost since World War II. O'Brian and Meredith reprised their roles in Search, the 1972-73 TV series inspired by the film.

Created, written, and produced by Leslie Stevens, "Probe" and "Search" - the subsequent television series that was spun off from the movie - was perhaps the last of the great adventure/spy television shows that grew out of the 1960s and early 1970s.
"Probe" follows agent Hugh Lockwood as he is assigned by the PROBE = Program Retreival Operations Business Enterprise - to recover a cache of nine diamonds that was lost near the end of World War Two.
With the help of a team of computer and medical specialists at PROBE headquarters, who communicate with him through a series of nanotechnology implants in his teeth and ears, Lockwood is able - most of the time - one up his opponents by using the advanced technology.
Perhaps the most intriguing thing about "Probe" is how well the show has aged. There is only a little dating of the technology.
"Probe" is an engrossing techno-spy thriller that is great fun to watch.
I REALLY envied Hugh Lockwood his hair and sideburns (c'mon, it was the early 70's).
Of course, today, much of it is nonsense: anyone with a Garmin bursts out laughing at the idea that Lockwood has to be patched in to the Naval Observatory to find his way around. And certainly some of the double entendres are juvenile and sexist.
None of this, however, really takes anything away from this wonderful movie or its series. I enjoyed nearly every minute of it, both then and now!
Please, for the love of God, would someone please do whatever it takes to make this series available for purchase?!?
Cutting-edge in its time, it's dated by today's standards; even so, it's a delightful romp that I'm delighted to see available... even if it's in the "I won't play on your computer, in case you're a thief or pirate" format. There will still be a market for stand-alone DVD players. A minor kvetch; at least it's available!
But ahead of its time
Had similar set up for 007 in Tomorrow Never Dies teaser sequence.
Love having a Team guide, coach me in my head, awesome.
Can use nanobots to place implants, smaller than Lockwoods for then
Classic for the ages
