The Box Of Death (Aired April 17, 1947)
The Television scripts were exposited in flashback format, with Casey narrating his latest exploit to Ethelbert the bartender. The 'Morning Express' also makes the transition from Boston to Manhattan, with reporter Ann Williams augmented by cub reporter Jack Lipman. Two months into the Television run, CBS re-cast Casey and Ethelbert, substituting young Darren McGavin as Jack Casey. The most distinguishing element of the short-lived Television Casey was its direction, with the famed future Film Director Sidney Lumet helming the series. CBS and Coxe took another run at Crime Photographer over Radio in 1954, reprising Staats Cotsworth, John Gibson and Jan Miner in their previous Radio roles. The 1954 run extended to the Spring of 1955, at which point the Crime Photographer franchise had pretty much run its course. THIS EPISODE: April 17, 1947. CBS network. "Box Of Death". Sponsored by: Anchor Hocking Glass. A crook with a lucky penny delivers a woman's husband to her, dead in a box. Staats Cotsworth, John Gibson, Tony Marvin (announcer), Archie Bleyer (music), George Harmon Coxe (creator), Alonzo Deen Cole (writer). 29:22. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

Uncle Frank Murdered (Aired July 2, 1946)
The Boston Blackie radio series, also starring Morris, began June 23, 1944, on NBC as a summer replacement for The Amos 'n' Andy Show. Sponsored by Rinso, the series continued until September 15 of that year. Unlike the concurrent films, Blackie had a steady romantic interest in the radio show: Lesley Woods appeared as Blackie's girlfriend Mary Wesley. Harlow Wilcox was the show's announcer. On April 11, 1945, Richard Kollmar took over the title role in a radio series syndicated by Frederic W. Ziv to Mutual and other network outlets. Over 200 episodes of this series were produced between 1944 and October 25, 1950. THIS EPISODE: July 2, 1946. "Uncle Frank Murdered" - Program #64. ABC net origination, Ziv syndication. Commercials added locally. Joe Parker murders his Uncle Frank for Frank's money. He's planned the perfect crime.

Prize Fight Setup (Aired December 29, 1953)
Frank Sinatra seemed very comfortable in the role of Rocco Fortunato--'Rocky Fortune'--and the scripts that George Lefferts and Ernest Kinoy wrote for Sinatra made for some fascinating adventures. The role was clearly written specifically for him, and more importantly for the more 'adult' persona his agents and publicity reps were trying to portray of him at this point in his career. He'd already done the teen and 20-something idol gig, and he had been expressing more of an interest in dramatic work. Perhaps Sinatra's managers were simply hedging their bets. Sinatra's greatest initial dramatic role in From Here To Eternity was released October 19, 1953, just weeks after Rocky Fortune began its 26-week run on NBC. Show Notes From The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: December 29, 1953. NBC network. "The Prize Fight Fix". Sustaining. Rocky is mistaken for "The Great Gondolfo," a prize fighter. Finding himself in the ring, Rocky's surprised to find that he's the winner! There's a good reason...and it's filled with poison! Gambler's want him to take the long count..."from here to eternity!" This is a network version of cat. #61853. Frank Sinatra, Jack Mather, Barney Phillips, George Lefferts (writer), Maurice Hart, Joe Forte, Jack Carroll, Maya Gregory, Andrew C. Love (director). 23:28.

Twelve Angry Men (Aired October 16, 1959)
Instead of sketches, guest stars and musical interludes, humour developed from the characters and situations. Hancock's experiences were based in reality and observation. From the playlet "Look Back In Hunger" in The East Cheam Drama Festival episode, Galton and Simpson showed they were in touch with developments in the British theatre, the use of sighs and silent pauses in common with the work of Harold Pinter which began to emerge towards the end of the series' run. The measured pacing of these episodes were groundbreaking in the days of fast-talking Ted Ray, where every second of airtime had to be filled. With Galton and Simpson writing scripts prolifically, continuity was not priority, with details changed to suit the episode. The domestic situation varied, Hancock usually portrayed as unemployed or a hopeless, down-at-heel comedian. Sid was always on the fiddle in some way. Bill was dim and virtually unemployable (though he started as a fast-talking American-type Australian). Miss Pugh, Hancock's secretary, had such a loose job description that she cooked Sunday lunch. THIS EPISODE: October 16, 1959. Season 5. Episode 41. "Twelve Angry Men" BBC - Hancock's take on the movie. Of course, he becomes the jury foreman. Tony Hancock, Sid James, Robert Dorning. Duncan Wood (Director). Alan Simpson and Ray Galton (Writers). Duncan Wood (Producer). 28:52.

Justice (Aired October 31, 1948)
Beginning in 1942, NBC had reinaugurated its concept of the NBC University of The Air and its companion NBC Inter-American University of The Air. Throughout the mid-1940s NBC produced some twenty-five productions specifically designed to both educate and entertain. Indeed, many of those programs were incorporated into the curricula of high schools, colleges and universities throughout the U.S. and Canada. With the final episode of NBC University of The Air's production of The World's Great Novels in 1948, NBC reevaluated the NBC University of The Air concept and success over the past decade, determined to both continue the educational priorities of its NBC University concept, while at the same time developing further educational programming as equally entertaining as it was instructive. HIS EPISODE: October 31, 1948. NBC network. "Justice". Sustaining. A portrait of an 81-pound forgery, and the British system of justice at the turn of the century. Alma Lawton, Ben Wright, Crauford Kent, Dan O'Herlihy, Donald Morrison, Eric Snowden, George Lefferts (writer), Henry Russell (composer, conductor), Hugh Thomas, James Hilton (intermission commentator), John Galsworthy (author), John Hoyt, Nigel Bruce, Ramsay Hill, Raymond Lawrence, Tom McKee. 59:47.

Little Boy Red (Aired October 22, 1952)
I Was a Communist for the FBI was an American espionage thriller radio series with 78 episodes syndicated by Ziv to more than 600 stations in 1952-54. Made without FBI cooperation, the series was adapted from the book by undercover agent Matt Cvetic, who was portrayed by Dana Andrews.The series was crafted to warn people about the threat of Communist subversion of American society. The tone of the show is very jingoistic and ultra-patriotic. Communists are evil incarnate and the FBI can do no wrong. As a relic of the Joe McCarthy era, this show is a time capsule of American society during the Second Red Scare. THIS EPISODE: October 22, 1952. Program #27. ZIV Syndication. "Little Boy Red". Commercials added locally. A Russian is being forced to return home because his very Communist son has been kidnapped and brought to a camp in the country. The date is sub ject to correction. Byron Kane, Dana Andrews, Jeffrey Silver, Truman Bradley (announcer). 26:32. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

Motel Burglary (Aired September 25, 1954)
Before the "Reality TV", there was "Reality Radio" and Night Watch was there. This show is a straight crime documentary with no music, sound effects, or actors. Police reporter Don Reid rode in a prowl car on the night shift with officers from the Culver City, California police department. While wearing a hidden microphone, he captures the sounds and voices of real life drama. From the worried child to the hardened criminal, their stories come through loud and clear. The names were changed to protect identities, but everything else in this gripping series is real. THIS EPISODE: September 25, 1954. "Motel Burglary" - CBS network. Sustaining. The first call is about a burglary suspect caught in a motel, stealing towels and bed clothes! Later, a young girl has been locked out of her house. Donn Reed (police recorder), W. N. Hildebrand (Chief of Police), Sterling Tracy (producer, director), Jim Headlock (producer), Ron Perkins (technical advisor). 28:30. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

After The Funeral (Part 2 of 2) 1947
During the first world war, Poirot left Belgium for Britain as a refugee. It was here, on 16 July 1916, that he again met his lifelong friend, Captain Arthur Hastings, and solved the first of his cases to be published: The Mysterious Affair at Styles. After that case Poirot apparently came to the attention of the British secret service, and undertook cases for the British government, including foiling the attempted abduction of the Prime Minister. After the war Poirot became a free agent and began undertaking civilian cases. He moved into what became both his home and work address, 56B Whitehaven Mansions, Sandhurst Square,London W1. It was chosen by Poirot for its symmetry. His first case was "The Affair at the Victory Ball", which saw Poirot enter the high society and begin his career as a private detective. Between the first and second world wars, Poirot traveled all over Europe and the Middle East investigating crimes and murders. Most of his cases happened during this period and he was at the height of his powers at this point in his life.

After The Funeral (Part 1 of 2) 1947
Poirot was apparently born in Spa, Belgium and, based on the conjecture that he was thirty at the time of his retirement from the Belgian police force at the time of the outbreak of the First World War, it is suggested that he was born in the mid 1880s. This is all extremely vague, as Poirot is thought to be an old man in his dotage even in the early Poirot novels, and in An Autobiography Christie admitted that she already imagined him to be an old man in 1920. (At the time, of course, she had no idea she would be going on writing Poirot books for many decades to come.) Much of the suggested dating for Poirot's age is therefore post-rationalisation on the part of those attempting to make sense of his extraordinarily long career. THIS EPISODE: "After the Funeral" is a work of detective fiction by Agatha Christie and first published in the US by Dodd, Mead and Company in March 1953 under the title of Funerals are Fatal and in UK by the Collins Crime Club on May 18 of the same year under Christie's original title. The US edition retailed at $2.50 and the UK edition at ten shillings and sixpence (10/6). A 1963 UK paperback issued by Fontana Books changed the title to Murder at the Gallop to tie in with the film version. It features her Belgian detective Hercule Poirot. 37:58.
