Series Description:

DRAGNET, the brainchild of Jack Webb, may very well be the most well-
remembered, and the best, radio police drama series. From September,
1949 through February 1957, DRAGNET's 30 minute shows, broadcast on
NBC, brought to radio true police stories in a low-key, documentary
style.

The origins of DRAGNET can be traced to a semi-documentary film, "He
Walked by Night" from 1948, in which Mr. Webb had a small role. Both
employed the same Los Angeles Police Department technical adviser,
used actual police cases and presented the case in "just the facts"
manner that became a hallmark of DRAGNET. It is interesting to note
that Mr. Webb employed that format in other radio series, some pre-
dating the film mentioned above.

In the radio series, Mr. Webb starred as Sgt. Joe Friday and Barton
Yarborough played his partner. The success of the radio show led to
the production of a Dragnet television pilot, which aired as an
episode of CHESTERFIELD SOUND OFF TIME in 1951 and ultimately the
DRAGNET television series on NBC in early 1952.


Log Comments:

This log started with a very complete listing from Fair Pickings
found on the Internet (see "Other Logs Or Books" below). Jerry
Haendiges' log was used to verify titles and descriptions. His log
identified a number of show titles otherwise not found. Of special
note in Jerry's log was the identification of type of case for each
show in the comments field (see "Other Logs Or Books" below). Ed
Carr provided a log of all shows prior to the re-run series. Dick
Judge provided short synopsis of shows or main character name which
I've added below the show titles (preceded by "Syn:").

For the early part of the series, show titles did not always match
between catalogs used to develop the log. In those cases, other
titles are listed as alternates (preceded by "Alt:"). Where the
shows were duplicates of previously aired shows, "(dup)" will be
shown after the title.

From September 27, 1955 to the last show of the series, all shows
were re-runs. The original date of broadcast is shown after the
titles.
