Death Is No Accident (1973) *The Exact Date Is Unknown.
The Epic Casebook (1957–1985) - "... in which Inspector Carr investigates ..." - The highly successful detective series, starring Hugh Rouse as Inspector Carr. Written & Produced by Michael Silver at the CRC Studios, Johannesburg. The series aired originally on Thursday evenings at 21H30, sponsored by the Epic Oil Company of S.A. In 1977 the sponsorship ended and the series was renamed "Inspector Carr Investigates" and moved to the earlier slot of 20H30. The first actor to play Inspector Carr was Don Davis, he was replaced in 1959 by Hugh Rouse. Don returned briefly in 1964 for 14 episodes. However Hugh Rouse made this series his own. A short lived television series was made by the SABC in the early 1980s with Michael McCabe, playing the famous Inspector. Sadly the transformation from radio to television was a total disaster. The series ended in June 1985 on Springbok Radio. A local Johannesburg radio station, Radio Today 1485am tried to revive the series in 1997, sadly copyright issues could not be cleared up & the idea was abandoned.

Boxcars711 Overnight Western "The Six Shooter" - Anna Norquest (Aired May 6, 1954)
Radio and Film. Just as in noir crime fiction in print, film noir and radio noir had ushered in a new perspective on traditional fiction; the overlaying of contemporary values, psychological themes and sophisticated social interactions between characters of a story. The adult western transformed the traditional 'black hat'-'white hat' type of shoot'em up cowboy opera format into a form that examined the deeper motivations of its characters and how those psychological themes informed the plot--but in a period western setting. Adult westerns first appeared in Film with big screen hits like Sam Fuller's classic I Shot Jesse James (1949), Winchester '73 (1950), High Noon (1952), and Shane (1953). These were typical examples of the earliest popular appearances of the genre. The first manifestations of the genre in Radio came near the end of the Golden Age of Radio. Indeed, some feel that the genre may have helped extend the Golden Age of Radio to the early 1960s. Show Notes From The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: May 6, 1954. "Anna Norquest" - NBC network. Sustaining. A good story about a mail-order bride from Sweden who arrives to find her pen-pal groom about to be hanged for murder. Harry Bartell is billed as Harry "Killer" Bartell. This is a network, sponsored version. Jimmy Stewart, Harry Bartell, Hal Gibney (announcer), Basil Adlam (music), Lillian Buyeff, Lou Merrill, William Johnstone, Frank Burt (writer), Jack Johnstone (director). 30:11.

Carnival Frail (Aired February 14, 1951)
A series based on short films of the same name produced by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. It was similar to Gangbusters, having a moralistic message about the law and lawbreaker. It was first heard over WMGM (NYC), hosted by Donald Buka. The last original show aired on Apr. 11, 1951. The series started on Monday evenings at 7:30 PM (on WMGM) and held that time/day spot until Oct. 30, 1950. The 56'th show marked a change to Wednesday night, again at 7:30. After show number 78 (Apr.11, 1951) the shows were repeated, starting with the first, "Kid With a Gun". The repeats followed the original order up until repeat of number 26, "Ingenious Woman" on Oct. 10, 1951. Repeats were not uncommon. Even before the last original show, older shows were repeated on alternate dates to the main series run. On Jan. 7, 1952, the series moved to Mutual but lasted just one year. Only repeats of the original series were aired and show ordering did not match the first run. The show was heard on Dec. 22, 1952. THIS EPISODE: February 14, 1951. Program #70. MGM syndication. "Carnival Frail". Commercials added locally. A hard-boiled carnival worker meets a wealthy "old geezer." She becomes "the rich girl that lives on the hill" and the old geezer gets a knife in the back. The date above is the date of the first broadcast on WMGM, New York, from which this syndicated version may have been taken. Diane Barrymore, Jon Gart (composer, conductor), Ira Marion (writer), Marx B. Loeb (producer, director), Burton B. Turkas (technical advisor), Bob Williams (announcer). 25:29.

Nicky (Aired March 4, 1948)
The unique programming wrinkle that ABC was apparently attempting to promote with The Clock was a mix of the traditional crime drama and the supernatural dramas of the previous fifteen years. One or the other of the two genres had been traditionally popular formats throughout the Golden Age of Radio era. To its credit, ABC gave The Clock all the time it needed to create an audience. It kept the series in pretty much the same timeslot throughout its seventy-eight episode run, maintained reasonably high standards of talent--both in front of and behind, the mike--and simply waited to see what developed. NBC, by contrast was fairly brutal in its approach to new programming: if it didn't attract a sponsor by the magical thirteenth installment, NBC moved it all over the Radio dial on the slightest programming whim, in an effort to find either a home, an audience, or a sponsor for it. The Clock might well have found a larger audience had ABC had either the budget or resolve to promote it. Show Notes From The Old Time Radio Researcher's Group and The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: March 4, 1948. ABC network. "Nicky">/I>. Sustaining. A gangster is executed for murder.., or is he? Everyone thinks so. Alice Frost, Joe DeSantis, Lawrence Klee (writer), Bernard Green (music director), Clark Andrews (director), Lamont Johnson. 29:22. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

Wine Of Freedom (Aired October 15, 1950)
Based on the book, Cloak and Dagger: The Secret Story of the O.S.S. by Corey Ford and Alistair McBain, the Radio rendition of these fascinating stories promised to keep any listener perched on the edge of their seat. Apart from describing the book upon which the new adventure series was based, the above is just about all the fanfare that was associated with the roll-out of NBC's only espionage program of the year. It was also one of the few solo productions that Wyllis Cooper undertook for NBC. It was also Cooper's first collaboration with British crime journalist Percy Hoskins, who would work with Cooper yet again on NBC's WHItehall-1212 a year hence. The combination of Hoskin's unfailingly accurate research and Cooper's lively, fast-paced writing and direction proved to be an excellent underpinning for an espionage adventure drama based on factual events. The Office of Strategic Services--the progenitor of our Central Intelligence Agency--was one of American History's most colorful and compelling World War II intelligence gathering efforts. It was also, quite understandably, one of our most secret undertakings. Given that backdrop it's very instructive that during the run up to the Cold War years, NBC would attempt to air a fact-based espionage anthology.

Boxcars711 Overnight Western "Roy Rogers Show" - The Wailing Gold Mine (Aired October 30, 1952)
Roy Rogers was born to Andrew ("Andy") and Mattie (Womack) Slye in Cincinnati, Ohio, where his family lived in a tenement building on 2nd Street. (Riverfront Stadium was constructed at this location in 1970 and Rogers would later joke that he had been born at second base.) Dissatisfied with his job and city life, Andy Slye and his brother Will built a 12-by-50-foot houseboat from salvage lumber, and, in July 1912, the Slye family floated on the Ohio River towards Portsmouth, Ohio. Desiring a more stable existence in Portsmouth, the Slyes purchased land on which to build a home, but the flood of 1913 allowed them to move the houseboat to their property and continue living in it on dry land. THIS EPISODE: October 30, 1952.

The Tiger & Brad Ferguson (Aired March 10, 1954)
Crime Classics was a United States radio docudrama which aired as a sustaining series over CBS from June 15, 1953, to June 30, 1954. Created, produced, and directed by radio actor/director Elliott Lewis, the program was a historical true crime series, examining crimes and murders from the past. It grew out of Lewis' personal interest in famous murder cases and took a documentary-like approach to the subject, carefully recreating the facts, personages and feel of the time period. Comparatively little dramatic license was taken with the facts and events, but the tragedy was leavened with humor, expressed largely through the narration. The crimes dramatized generally covered a broad time and place frame from ancient Greece to late 19th-century America. Each episode in the series was co-written by Morton Fine and David Friedkin, in consultation with Lewis, although the scripting process was more a matter of research, as the stories were "adapted from the original court reports and newspaper accounts" or from the works of historians. Show Notes From The Old Time Radio Researcher's Group and The Digital Deli.
