Re: TV NOTW - The Case of the Wholesale Burglaries 1956
The M.O. of this show sounds similar to the much later documentary series City Confidential, which also tackled crimes on a city-by-city basis, every sort of municipality from the biggest cities to the smallest towns. This is one of my favorite trash television programs ever, because the producers really did make some attempt to situate each crime in its location in a pop-sociological sense. As a half-hour show, City Confidential would have been pretty negligible; but with an hour to fill, it had time to dig into the specifics of each town.
