L. Radio

 

Most of the information for sections L and P was obtained by checking the daily radio and television schedules published in The Times of London and The New York Times. Detailed information for the British programs was gathered from the BBC's Radio Times, and therefore the information on the programs should be fairly complete. The only publications comparable to Radio Times in this country are TV Guide and The Cable Guide, and they do not give full credits and complete casts for the programs. There is no publication that has provided full coverage for radio programs in the United States. William Nadel and Ray Stanich's series "Medium Rare -- Sometimes Well Done," published in Prescott's Press (New Series), contains valuable information on the radio dramatizations.

Edith Meiser, who wrote many of the Sherlock Holmes radio programs in the U.S. between 1930 and 1944 (many of the programs were repeated during these and later years), has been a valuable source of information for this bibliography. In addition to writing hundreds of radio scripts, she collaborated with Frank Giacoia on a series of Sherlock Holmes comic strips for the New York Herald Tribune from 1954 to 1956. Many women have been honored by The Baker Street Irregulars with the title of The Woman, the title Holmes reserved for Irene Adler. Edith Meiser was honored with the coveted title in 1987, which is the centennial of A Study in Scarlet. She is the one woman above all others who deserves this honor. Miss Meiser was also one of six women who were inducted into the ranks of The Baker Street Irregulars in 1991. Her investiture is, fittingly, "A Fascinating and Beautiful Woman." Her many accomplishments are noted in Who's Who in the Theatre and Who's Who in America.

Many of the radio series in this country originated in Hollywood; but in order to give a specific date and time of broadcast for each series and, when possible, for each story in a series, only the broadcasts in New York City are listed. These series, of course, were broadcast over many stations in all parts of the country.

Much has been written and said about the fourteen Rathbone/Bruce films, but only lately has attention been paid to their weekly radio broadcasts between 1939 and 1946. In a series of six Sherlock Holmes adventures, they made 218 programs (some may have been repeats). Nigel Bruce then appeared in one additional series of thirty-nine programs with Tom Conway of Falcon fame the following year. Basil Rathbone also portrayed Holmes in a teleplay in 1953, in his wife's stage play later that year, and made several recordings between 1958 and 1967. Many of these radio broadcasts are now being released on records and tapes. Perhaps no other actor portrayed the Master Detective so perfectly, bringing him into the homes of many millions of people, both here and abroad. He was (is) Sherlock Holmes!

In recent years Jeremy Brett and Edward Burke/Edward Hardwicke have taken the Holmes spotlight on television with their excellent portrayals of Holmes and Watson. The teleplays are faithful adaptations of the stories and are beautifully photographed. Brett and Hardwicke have also appeared in Jeremy Paul's well-received play, The Secret of Sherlock Holmes. The Baker Street Constables (Fans of Jeremy Brett) issue an irregular publication devoted to Brett entitled The Brett Gazette.
