Mondays this month will feature episodes of The Black Museum with Orson Wells.  The early 1950s saw an unprecedented resurgence of interest in Great Britain's famous New Scotland Yard buoyed by International Radio, Television and Print. A staple of international Crime and Mystery novels from the turn of the century forward, Scotland Yard, or as The Black Museum refers to it, "The Criminal Investigation Department (C.I.D.) of The London Police", was showcased in no less than four Radio programs between 1948 and 1952.
