The Clock
Sunrise and sunset, promise and fulfillment, birth and death the whole drama of life is written in the sands of time.

The Clock was a great mystery-suspense show of the late 1940s. It was an Australian series produced by Grace Gibson, which was imported and aired
intact over the ABC network for some 15 months. The settings were generic and the actors and actresses spoke without a perceptible accent and for
that reason the program sounded "American". At the end of this run the series continued for another 13 weeks but now with an All-American cast with
new scripts and the entire crew including the cast, directors, musicians, etc., Americans. Written by Lawrence Klee, this show is a study in the
manipulation of our lives by time. In effect, each drama is a study in how something happens, but then is changed by the passage or manipulation of the
moment. It is often very psychological, and nearly always very suspenseful. The introduction to each half-hour remains the same. The series aired beyond
this 13 week time period.

In 1947, the production moved west to Hollywood, and the able William Spier, a major director of Suspense in the 1940's, took the director's chair.
Actors included "Mr. and Mrs. Radio,
Cathy and Elliott Lewis, Jeanette Nolan and many others who worked the Hollywood-originated radio shows.

The stories were narrated by a deep-voiced "Father Time" figure, to a ticking cadence:

"In England they call me Ben, and I
have a large and extremely showy flat
in Westminster Tower but just between
the two of us, I feel much more
comfortable at the end of a chain and
there's the quiet old lady who keeps a
favored place for me in the corner of
her room to her, I'm known as
Grandfather."
