Whitehall 1212 was the famous telephone number for Scotland Yard—the headquarters of the London Metropolitan Police Force—and also an exciting true crime drama from the golden age of radio!

Written and directed by Wyllis Cooper (the creator of Lights Out and Quiet Please), Whitehall 1212 was a crime drama that aired on NBC from 1951 until 1952. It was hosted by Chief Superintendent John Davidson, curator of the Black Museum, Scotland Yard’s repository of death. Similar to The Black Museum, starring Orson Welles, Whitehall 1212 dramatized true-crime cases solved by Scotland Yard. The announcer cued up each episode with, “These are the true stories, the unvarnished facts, just as they occurred, reenacted for you by an all-British cast. Only the names of the participants have for obvious reasons been changed. The stories are presented with the full cooperation of Scotland Yard.”

The researcher for the series was Percy Hoskins, the chief crime reporter for London Daily Telegraph. Hoskins was the newspaperman who had initially reported on some of the crimes being dramatized. Enjoy sixteen episodes from this excellent crime series—all true stories from Scotland Yard!

About the Narrator

New York Times bestselling coauthors Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff met thanks to international taxation law, and soon struck up a writing partnership based on a shared love of blowing things up and breaking hearts. Their first collaboration resulted in the international bestseller Illuminae. Separately, Amie is also the coauthor of the bestselling Starbound trilogy, while Jay is the author of the award-winning Lotus War trilogy and the Nevernight Chronicle. They live with their respective spouses in Melbourne, Australia, and are fueled almost exclusively by caffeine and readers’ tears.
