Escape: The Man Who Would Be King
Escape: Operation Fleur De Lys


“Escape” was a half hour drama broadcast by CBS. It started in 1947 and the final show aired in 1954. Although it was one of the best radio dramas, it never found a steady audience. Its timeslot was moved here and there, it went on hiatus, or it replaced other shows. Despite its rocky schedule, it was a very solid show, using the talents of great (and low paid) radio professionals including Jack Webb, William Conrad, Frank Lovejoy, Virginia Gregg, and others.

The series focused on life and death situations, some supernatural, wars, the old west, jungle adventures, and of course they all dealt with the perilous escape. The show adapted classics of high adventure from such writers as Joseph Conrad, H. Ryder Haggard, Edgar Allan Poe, as well as original pieces made for radio. The stories explored interesting new territories, with topics from H.G. Well’s “The Time Machine” to examining the inside of prisoner’s mind, racial prejudice, and of course, the end of the world. “Escape” was a kind of counterpart to the show “Suspense”. Although Suspense became much more popular, it borrowed some stories and talent from Escape.
