The Brass Button

This murder mystery series was based on true life cases from Scotland Yard's files. Each episode was based on an item or items of evidence in the Crime Museum at Scotland Yard, the oldest museum in the world purely for recording crime. Orson Welles hosted and narrated the shows.
"This is Orson Welles speaking from London." (Big Ben starts himing in the background). "The Black Museum, repository of death... Here, in this grim stone structure on the Thames which houses Scotland Yard, is a warehouse of homocide, where everyday objects, a piece of wire, a chemist's flask, a silver shilling, all are touched by murder." (dramatic music)
Following the opening, Mr. Welles would introduce the museum's item or items of evidence that was central to the case, leading into the dramatization. He also provided narration during the show.
