“Possibly you have seen pictures and read descriptions …”

– The Adventure of the Musgrave Ritual (MUSG)

In 1940, Lenox R. Lohr, the president of the National Broadcasting Company (NBC) published his book, Television Broadcasting. a technical volume on the challenges and opportunities that the industry would face going forward.

Lohr makes several references to the NBC broadcast of The Adventures of the Three Garridebs and we are sharing those in this post.

 

The Appendix, which contains the script of the broadcast can be found HERE.

Thanks to the 42nd Garrideb, Denny Dobry for scanning the script and to the 19th Garrideb, Steve Mason, for creating the .pdf file

  1. The extract from “Television Broadcasting”, with photos and script of “The Three Garridebs”, is a gem. Many thanks to Denny Dobry and Steve Mason!

    The script was included in a 1998 anthology called “The Mammoth Book of Armchair Detectives & Screen Crimes The stories that inspired great TV and movie thrillers”, edited by Peter Haining (London: Robinson Publishing – with a note: “First published as two hardback collections, Crime Movies and Crime Movies II by Severn House in 1996 and 1997”). “The Three Garridebs” is the only script in the book, which otherwise consists of the original stories by the likes of Edgar Wallace, Ernest Hemingway, Evan Hunter, Georges Simenon, Mickey Spillane, Anthony Shaffer, Frederick Forsyth, David Morrell, Ruth Rendell and, er, Woody Allen. Perhaps understandably, it omits the technical details, which makes your scan from “Television Broadcasting” all the more cherishable.
