Credits were taken from the TV title and end credits of "Barnaby Jones". Although efforts
have been made to identify all actors on the show (even in bit parts) not everybody could be
related to her/his correponding role. For Season One the character names of the 'with' actors
were not listed, only the actors' names. (Although several additional people could be identified by now, I am still working on this; your help is welcome...). Many names were double-checked
for correct spelling. Thanks to US Internet Movie Database as their filmographies were of
great help to identify lesser known performers.
