Your direct line to crime, mystery, and intrigue? Dial Whitehall 1212! That was the London phone number for Scotland Yard -- and the title of a brisk, fast-moving series of critically acclaimed crime dramas based on the real-life exploits of the London Metropolitan Police.
Harvey Hays plays Chief Superintendent Davidson, custodian of the Yard's "Black Museum," as he introduces us to assorted relics from cases of murder and espionage: a black trunk, a mechanical pencil, a bottle of whisky, a cheap discarded raincoat.
Tune in for 16 tense adventures drawn from actual case files and written by Lights Out legend Wyllis Cooper!
