Dangerous Assignment: International Espionage

08-05-2023 • 29 mins

“Dangerous Assignment” was a radio adventure series that aired from 1949 to 1954. The show starred Brian Donlevy as Steve Mitchell, a government agent who traveled around the world on dangerous assignments for his boss known as "The Commissioner". Each episode began with Mitchell receiving a new assignment, which he had to complete within a specified timeframe.

The show had a unique format where each assignment was split into two parts, with the first part taking place in the United States, and the second part taking place in another part of the world. This allowed the show to explore various exotic locations, from the jungles of South America to the deserts of the Middle East.

One of the things that set "Dangerous Assignment" apart from other adventure shows was the emphasis on realism. The show employed a team of writers who were former journalists and foreign correspondents, which gave the show an air of authenticity. The show also used actual sounds from the locations where the episodes were set, which helped to create a more immersive experience for the listener.

Overall, "Dangerous Assignment" was a thrilling and well-crafted radio show that offered listeners a glimpse into the exciting and dangerous world of international espionage and adventure.
