No doubt Webb’s police drama dominated the airwaves in the earlier decade. The initial version of the show was designed for radio, first airing in 1949 and continuing for 318 weekly episodes until 1955. Not only did the two series run concurrently for three years; they were intimately connected, with the radio scripts providing most, if not all, of the material for subsequent televisual production and broadcast.
