It was interesting. They made mention of the fact that A.G.Bell made the first metal detector to attempt to locate the projectile remaining in Garfield's body to relieve him the agony of his physician probing for it. His physician would only allow the device to be used in the area where he had predicted (in error) that it would be found. It was inferred in the program that the horrid treatment of Garfield by his physician friend precipitated his demise.
