Listen to Dragnet on your phone!
Dragnet was a thirty-minute police drama featuring actual cases taken from the files of the Los Angeles Police Department. Jack Webb directed Dragnet and also played Detective Sergeant Joe Friday, the star of the show, who had remained a bachelor and still lived at home with his mother. It was one of the first radio shows to break the silence against dramatising sex crimes and child murders.
