Secrets Of Scotland Yard - The Fence (1950) *Actual 1950 Date Unknown

The only current evidence we have of Secrets of Scotland Yard's first commercial airing was via the Radio Listings for Radio Lourenço Marques dating from May 1950, combined with David Goldin's meticulously compiled database of Radio recordings from both electrical transcription and tape at his RadioGOLDINdex. Those E.T. numbers, combined with the publish date of the Lourenço Marques listing would tend to support the hypothesis of a unique run of at least 110 episodes which, if aired in E.T. order, might have begun airing over LM Radio as early as December 1948. Given their weekly scheduling, that would yield an approximate chronological run of just over two years. The first 'sanctioned' broadcasts of Secrets of Scotland Yard were heard over Canada's CBC Radio station CJOB, from approximately May 24, 1950 through approximately November 30, 1953. The Canadian broadcasts appear to have been a somewhat smaller subset of the original set of transcriptions, comprising a run of some 106 episodes, versus the theoretical entire run of 110. The first American broadcasts of Secrets of Scotland Yard were heard over The Mutual Broadcasting System (MBS) and its loose confederation of independent affiliates throughout the United States.
