This was one of many transplants to early television from network radio. It was created by George W. Trendle and Fran Striker who also put together both the radio and television versions of "The Lone Ranger" and the radio version of "The Green Hornet".
At a time of look-alike westerns filmed on the back-lots of Hollywood, "Sergeant Preston of the Yukon" offered viewers the white landscape of Canada's Yukon Territory. It was actually filmed each winter in the mountains of Big Bear Lake, in southern California.
Like "The Lone Ranger", each week the story's setting and characters were described by the narrator in the opening credits: "Sergeant Preston of the Northwest Mounted Police with Yukon King, swiftest and strongest lead dog breaking the trail in the relentless pursuit of lawbreakers, in the wild days of the Yukon. Back to the days of the Gold Rush, as Sergeant Preston, with his wonder dog, Yukon King, meets the challenge of the Yukon".Read more ›
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police are in the Canadian north keeping the peace against great odds at times but always succeed to ensure that justice is meted out and that the bad guys go to jail. Good light viewing and a piece of TV nostalgia.

I enjoy Sergeant Preston of the Yukon immensely. It is extremely corny and every remote cabin looks suspiciously like the same cabin but it is fun. Read morePublished on March 1, 2013 by Tom Caesar
