As television was poised to grip the entertainment-seeking habits of the nation, one radio program offered high-brow entertainment that wasn’t in direct competition with the new medium of TV: Great Scenes From Great Plays. This show adapted about twenty minutes’ worth of a wide variety of plays, such as “Dark Victory” (Block), “Little Women” (Alcott), “A Tale of Two Cities” (Dickens), “What Every Woman Knows” (Barrie), “The Devil and Daniel Webster” (Benet), “Young Mr Lincoln,” “A Doll’s House” and others. Nestled into the winter of 1948 was a gem of a radio program, not one of the best-known of all time, but great for a serious listener who craves programming with a message.
