This is Orson Welles speaking from London. Here in a grim stone structure on the Thames which houses Scotland Yard. There is a warehouse of
homicide, a very strange room where everyday objects- a woman's shoe, a tiny white box, a quilted robe- all are touched by murder.

The Black Museum was a "Towers of London" production broadcast over Radio Luxembourg in 1951. It was syndicated for broadcast in the
States in 1952. Hosted by
Orson Welles, we are given a tour of Scotland Yard's "Museum of Murder". The show was a reenactment of a
homicide in which each item was a key piece of evidence, as enacted mainly from the inspector in the case. The episodes describe how they
arrived at clues, the step by step gathering of evidence, the unglamorous waiting and watching, until the police finally zero in on the culprit

by prior appointment.

The Crime Museum at Scotland Yard is the oldest museum in the world put together purely for recording crime.
