This postwar half-hour
crime drama series ran from 1949 to 1951. Each
week, anxious radio-listeners tune in to hear a different story:
A man finds an armless and legless body wrapped in ribbons and lace,
two close brothers who love one another do not like one of the brother’s
affluent, unsightly and ignorant wife, a malevolent fellow murders
the wealthy matron that he lives with and then makes her body disappear.
Each time, Scotland Yard detectives are afoot to solve the crime

Yard is hosted by Clive Brook, narrator of LM Radio. Brook
was a successful director writer, and actor in many films, including “Dressed to Thrill” in 1935, “The Flemish Farm” in 1943 and “On
Approval” in 1944. He was probably best remembered for playing
opposite Marlene Dietrich in the 1932 movie, “Shanghai Express.” He also played Sherlock Holmes
in the 1932 movie of the same name.
