Whitehall 1212 Old Time Radio Program

Whitehall 1212 (also called the Black Museum)
½ hour crime/mystery show

Scotland Yard keeps a museum of crime, or as they call it, a “repository of death.” Whitehall 1212 is the phone number for Scotland Yard and each week a call would set the stage for the real crime based dramatization that followed. The museum is also called the “Black” Museum for its ties with murder, horror and crime. Each artifact in the museum has seen its own crime, whether just or premeditated. Now the simple objects are kept as sinister reminders of the actual events and deeds, and this program recounts the stories associated with each artifact.

In 1951, British commercial radio producer Harry Alan Towers produced a radio series hosted by Orson Welles called The Black Museum. The American radio writer Wyllis Cooper also wrote and directed a similar anthology for NBC that ran at the same time in the U. S. Called Whitehall 1212, the program debuted on November 18, 1951, hosted by Chief Superintendent John Davidson, curator of the Black Museum. The collection we have here is the American version (sorry, no Orson Welles).
