Cameras in the Old West! Can you tell these TV crews apart?

Bonanza and Gunsmoke remain two of the most popular Westerns to ever grace the small screen. They both had incredibly long runs from the Fifties to the Seventies, both had casts full of beloved actors and both could do comedy, drama and action equally well.

Another thing these classics had in common were the filming styles. Both utilized soundstage studio sets along with dramatic on-location shooting. Some significant episodes of both were shot almost entirely outside.

Here are a few rarely seen behind-the-scenes images from both shows. Can you guess which set each photo is from?
