TV Q&A: Why is ‘Law & Order: Organized Crime’ heading to streaming?

You have questions. I have some answers.

Q: I was shocked to see NBC move “Law & Order: Organized Crime” to Peacock. What a stupid decision on NBC’s part. I really like this show but if I pay for anything it will be on DVD.

A: NBC is indeed moving the drama from the broadcast network to its streaming companion Peacock. (“Law & Order” and “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” will continue on regular NBC.) And the movie is clearly intended to attract people to Peacock. noted that “Organized Crime” had not performed as well on NBC as Dick Wolf’s other shows (the “Law & Order” and “Chicago” programs). But he said Wolf productions are among the most popular on Peacock.

Q: I remember seeing a movie in the 1970s where two teenage lovers join the Peace Corps and later become involved in a terrorist organization (something like the SLA). I remember one of the songs was either “Teach Your Children” by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young or “One Tin Soldier.” However, I don’t remember the name of the film. Can you help ?

A: You remember a 1975 movie called “Katherine,” sometimes known as “The Radical.” It stars Sissy Spacek as a young woman who becomes a revolutionary. The cast also includes Henry Winkler and Art Carney, and “Teach Your Children” is in the soundtrack. Although this may sound like Patricia Hearst’s story, some sources claim that it was actually based on Diana Oughton, another radicalized woman. One place I found it is Amazon Prime Video.

Q: I recently read about a film that was made about Lyudmila Pavlichenko, known as Lady Death, a Russian sniper during World War II, and her meeting with Eleanor Roosevelt in 1942. Do you know when and where this film could be released?

A: The movie I found was released in 2015 and is called “The Battle of Sevastopol”. In fact, there are several films with this name, one being a drama about Pavlichenko and the other a documentary. I saw DVDs for sale of both and the drama on Prime Video.

Q: Every Christmas we watched a movie (if I remember correctly) called “Who Will Look After My Children”. He was the eldest child who had been trying to place his siblings with new families since the father had drowned and the mother was deathly ill. Do you know more?

A: Although some details are different, I think the movie you are looking for might be “All Mine to Give” (also known as “The Day They Gave the Babies Away”). Based on a true story, the 1957 production features a young man who finds a home for his siblings after the death of their parents. It was based on a book by Dale Eunson (son of the real young man). But there is another film, 1983’s “Who Will Love My Children,” in which Ann-Margret plays a dying mother looking for a new home for her 10 children. It was based on the life of Lucile Fray, with a screenplay by Michael Bortman.

Q: When will “Virgin River” return?

A: I don’t know. Work has begun on the sixth season of the Netflix drama, and the streamer’s media site says it’s “coming soon.” But at least one report estimates that “soon” it will be 2025.
