Description by OLDIES.com:
, a premier anthology drama featuring stories of mystery and the macabre, was broadcast live from New York over the CBS Television Network beginning in 1949 and continuing on until 1954. Before moving to television, it had been a weekly fixture on the CBS Radio Network from 1942 and remained that way for the next 20 years. It aired a total of 945 radio episodes, winning a Peabody Award and a special citation from the Mystery Writers of America.
The TV version successfully created the atmosphere of its radio predecessor by using that same identifiable opening announcement, ("And now, a tale well calculated to keep you in...Suspense!") accompanied by the familiar Bernard Herrmann theme played on a Hammond organ. Suspense was originally aired live but it has never been rerun in syndication so it has not been seen since its original live run. In association with CBS Enterprises, Falcon Picture Group and Infinity Entertainment have recently uncovered 90 TV episodes of Suspense (all of which, until recently, were thought to be lost), direct from filmed kinescope masters.
