Twelve Year Promise - (Aired November 19, 1951)
The Hollywood husband and wife team of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall set sail for adventure in the Bold Venture radio series in early 1951. There were well over 400 stations that aired the program. Since this was syndicated * the starting date varied from station to station but Mar 26, 1951 was the official date of the first show. Humphrey Bogart portrayed Slate Shannon, owner of a rundown Havana hotel, Shannon's Place. The action took place on land as well aboard Slate's boat, The Bold Venture, thus the title of the series. Lauren Bacall was his ward Sailor Duval, a stubborn and flirtatious young woman whose late father had willed her to Slate for her protection. Together the duo found adventure, intrigue, mystery and romance in the sultry settings of tropical Havana and the mysterious islands of the Caribbean. THIS EPISODE: 11-19-51. Program #18. ZIV Syndication. "A Twelve-Year-Old Promise". Commercials added locally. Shannon has inherited half an oil field from a man he hasn't seen in twelve years. This program might be program #35. Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Jester Hairston, David Rose (composer, conductor), Henry Hayward (director), Morton Fine (writer), David Friedkin (writer), Jackson Beck, Tony Barrett. 26:46.

Big Guns (Aired May 5, 1975)
Dad's Army ran in 1968 and 1977, and there were a total of eighty episodes spread over nine series, as well as three Christmas specials. Most episodes were also adapted for radio. The show was set in the fictional seaside town of Walmington-on-Sea, on the south coast of England, making the Home Guard the front line of defence against an invasion by the enemy forces across the English Channel, which formed a backdrop to the series. The first episode, The Man and the Hour, began with a scene set in the "present day" of 1968, in which Mainwaring addressed his old platoon as part of the contemporary "I'm Backing Britain" campaign. It was a flash-back to the founding of the Walmington-on-Sea Home Guard platoon by Mainwaring after he had heard Anthony Eden's 1940 radio broadcast. The final episode, Never Too Old, focused on the wedding of Corporal Jones and Mrs. Fox, which was interrupted as the platoon were put on full invasion alert. The first two series were in black and white. There are three lost episodes from series two.

The Match (Aired May 16, 1948)
Escape was radio's leading anthology series of high adventure, airing on CBS from July 7, 1947 to September 25, 1954. Since the program did not have a regular sponsor like Suspense, it was subjected to frequent schedule shifts and lower production budgets, although Richfield Oil signed on as a sponsor for five months in 1950. Despite these problems, Escape enthralled many listeners during its seven-year run. The series' well-remembered opening combined Mussorgsky's Night on Bald Mountain with the introduction, intoned by Paul Frees and William Conrad: “Tired of the everyday routine? Ever dream of a life of romantic adventure? Want to get away from it all? We offer you... Escape!” THIS EPISODE: May 16, 1948. CBS network. "The Match". Sustaining. A good story about a determined Mountie who is going to bring back his man, even if it kills him. Clark Cluney, Cynthia Corley, Frank Lovejoy, James Oliver Curwood (writer), Les Crutchfield (writer), Nestor Paiva, Stan Waxman, Wilbur Hatch (music), Wilms Herbert, Norman Macdonnell (director). 29:28.

Operation Hot Foot Microbes (Aired May 18, 1951)
This thirty-minute international spy adventure featured Steve Mitchell (Brian Donlevy), and investigator of crimes in exotic locations. 60 episodes. Herb Butterfield played the Commissioner and Betty Moran was the Commissioner's secretary. Other cast members were GeGe Pearson, Ken Peters, Betty Lou Gerson, Dan O’Herlihy. The director was Bill Cairn and the writer for the series was Robert Ryf. The opening was the same every week “Yeah, danger is my assignment. I get sent to a lot of places I can’t even pronounce. They all spell the same thing though, trouble.” Music is an almost harsh orchestra. Donlevy carries the plots with a world-weary and wary tone that makes sense, based on his occupation. THIS EPISODE: May 18, 1951. NBC network. Sustaining. Steve Mitchell is sent to Trinidad for, "Operation Hot Foot Microbes." Brian Donlevy sings! The closing promotional announcement and system cue have been deleted. Robert Ryf (writer), Adrian Gendot (writer), Bob Cairn (producer, director), Don Diamond, Herb Butterfield, Robert Armbruster (music), Brian Donlevy, Jester Hairston (calypso singer, billed as "Lord Byron"). 28:12.

Boxcars711 Overnight Western "Gunsmoke" - Murder Warrant (Aired April 24, 1954)
The radio version ran from 1952 to 1961, and John Dunning writes that among radio drama enthusiasts "Gunsmoke is routinely placed among the best shows of any kind and any time." The television version ran for 20 seasons from 1955 to 1975, and was the United States' longest-running prime time, live-action drama with 635 episodes. In 2010, Law & Order tied this record of 20 seasons (but only 456 episodes). At the end of its run in 1975, Los Angeles Times columnist Cecil Smith wrote "Gunsmoke was the dramatization of the American epic legend of the west. Our own Iliad and Odyssey, created from standard elements of the dime novel and the pulp western as romanticized by Buntline, Harte, and Twain. It was ever the stuff of legend. THIS EPISODE: April 24, 1954. CBS network. "Murder Warrant". Sustaining. Likeable Lee Prentiss has been shot from ambush. Jake Harbin is not so likeable, but he's a deputy sheriff with a warrant for Prentiss' arrest. The script was used on the Gunsmoke television series on April 18, 1959. George Walsh (announcer), Georgia Ellis, Howard McNear, James Nusser, John Dehner, John Meston (writer), Joseph Du Val, Lawrence Dobkin, Norman Macdonnell (producer, director), Parley Baer, Rex Koury (composer, performer), Sam Edwards, William Conrad. 24:17.

The Man With The Stolen Face (Aired July 15, 1945)
With The Sealed Book, each epsisode opened with the sound of the great gong, followed by Philip Clarke's observation that the Keeper of The Book had once again opened the door to the secret vault, within which was contained the 'great sealed book' recording 'all the secrets and mysteries of mankind through the ages.' At the end of all but the last episode, Clarke would tell listeners to tune in the following week when "the sound of the great gong heralds another strange and exciting tale from... the sealed book." Keep in mind that even though the 26 scripts of The Sealed Book were derived from The Mysterious Traveler, it's instructive to note that each production used a different cast than that of it's associated production from The Mysterious Traveler. THIS EPISODE: July 15, 1945. Program #18. Mutual network origination, Michelson syndication. "The Man With The Stolen Face". Commercials added locally. A millionaire and an unknown man have their faces exchanged, with surprising results. This program has also been dated September 16, 1945 on WGN, Chicago. Robert A. Arthur (writer), David Kogan (writer), Phillip Clarke (host), Jock MacGregor (producer, director). 30:02. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.
