Black Museum on TV

Postby WaltP » Sun Sep 10, 2006 11:28 pm

I just discovers this listing for Orson Welles Tales from the Black Museum from 2002. Is there any additional information available?

There are references to the program on sites across Europe, but I can find nothing here in The States. [/url]

First of all, it was not a TV show, just a radio series.

This anthology starred Orson Welles and was produced by Radio Luxembourg for syndication in early 1952. It was accepted for syndication by a number of U.S. stations and finally in Sept 1952, Mutual began airing it. It ceased that December.

Approximately 50 episodes are in trading currency and most dealers have some in stock.

Not according to the link I posted. It was created in 2002 with the original openings from the 50's radio series. Numerous links across Europe mention the show which starred Michael York. He wasn't acting in 1952 AFAIK. He was 10 at the time.
