The Story of America's Special
Written by Travis Ingham
Produced by William N. Robson
Prepared and recorded by the New
York Office of the BBC
This is the third feature programme from New York this year. Its author, Travis Ingham , will be remembered for his ' Crosstown New York', which was produced by William N. Robson and heard in Britain earlier this year. As in the case of No Help Wanted, all the actors in G-men Against Crime have been drawn from the radio division Of the Federal Theatre Project of the W.P.A.
Ingham and Robson ihave had the full assistance of the Federal Board of Investigation in preparing this programme. This Board is to America very much as Scotland Yard is to this country.
In this evening's programme you will hear how the great war of authority against social outlawry is being waged in the States.
An article on the work of the G-men, specially written for the RADIO TIMES by J. Edgar Hoover , Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, U.S. Department of Justice, will be found on page 10

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
