Imdb on "Assignment Munich":
Imdb on "Assignment Vienna":
Justman worked on the "Munich" pilot as executive producer, but because the MGM series kept being postponed, he decided to work with Leslie Stevens at Warner Brothers on "Search."
At first he didn't seem to remember the name of the series and he didn't recall Hugh O'Brian, but this is understandable as all that was some 30 years earlier and Search never reaired after the NBC run save for the Search pilot, of which Justman had no connection. (You can tell from the YouTube video that Justman and the interviewer occasionally refer to printed material.)
His observation that "it would've been better if Leslie Stevens had been able to give more time to it" is fair and diplomatic.
From viewing the other interview segments, I notice that Justman tends to be upbeat with very few negative comments about other individuals. I wish he could have explained why "Search" sometimes puzzled him and seemed empty to him. This contrasts with John Strong's rather enthusiastic recollections about the show.
Notice also that TV Legends refers to Justman's section as a 9 part interview, yet only 8 segments are posted. (Not quite four hours of online video.) Segment 9 is apparently missing?
Part One of the Robert Justman interviews:
