Beginning & Ending Narrations (Voice-overs)


THE A-TEAM/NBC/1983-87
[Narrator] "Ten years ago, in 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they did not commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortunes. If you had a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire...THE A-TEAM."

[Voice of Captain Carl Zimmerman] "All over the world the United States Army is on the alert to defend our country-you, the American People-against aggression. This is THE BIG PICTURE, an official television report to the nation from the United States Army."

[Narrator] "Following in his father's footsteps as a naval aviator Lieutenant Commander Harmon Rabb, Jr. suffered a crash while landing his Tomcat on a storm tossed carrier at sea. Diagnosed with night-blindness, Harm transferred to the Navy's Judge Advocate General Corp which investigates, defends and prosecutes the law of the sea. There, with fellow JAG lawyer Major Sarah McKenzie, he now fights in and out of the courtroom with the same daring and tenacity that made him a Top Gun in the air."

[The program began with the individual letters in the title NAVY LOG formed by two-thousand sailors standing on board the surface of the USS Hancock.]

[Voice of Lorna Patterson] "Ten Hut!...Hi! My name is Judy Benjamin, Uh, Private Benjamin. I was a debutante. I traveled all over the world, but I was bored...felt unwanted. The Army not only wanted me, they promised it would be wonderful. Things aren't perfect in the Army...yet. But I am sure with a little time, I can get them to do things my way."

[Voice of James Morrison] "We thought we were alone. We believed the universe was ours until one night in 2063 on an earth colony sixteen light years away. They struck! And now we're at war. My name is Lt. Colonel T.C. McQueen. I'm an In-vitro, a race of artificially gestated humans. I command a Marine Corp squadron....the 58th. They call us the Wild Cards. We fight when called, in space, on land, and at sea. To lose this war means more than defeat. To surrender is to never go home. All of us must rise to the call above and beyond."

[Narrator] "Steve Canyon-a salute to the Air Force men of America. You are about to see an actual mission flown by United States Air Force. All information, material and incidents contained herein are now declassified."
