Crime Club was broadcast by Mutual and produced and directed by Roger Bower. The post war stories were by various different authors and adapted for radio by among others Stedman Coles and Wyllis Cooper (writer of Lights Out and Quiet Please). The narrator played by Barry Thomson is the supposed curator of the Crime Club library. He speaks to the listener as if they have just arrived or phoned and requested one of the Club's books.
The telephone rings, Hello I hope I havent kept you waiting. This is the librarian, Silent Witnesses; yes we have that Crime Club book for you, come right over. The organ plays suspenseful music, the door opens and the librarian says, Ah youre here, good take the easy chair by the window. Comfortable? The book is on this shelf
He would take the book from the shelf and begin to tell the tale. The story would end with the Librarian informing you that there was a new Crime Club book available this week and every week in bookstores everywhere.
