Dossier on Dumetrius (OTR 1951)
Dossier on Dumetrius: the story of a document now gathering dust in a silent room
Dossier on Dumetrius introduced Major Gregory Keen of MI5 who was the forerunner to James Bond.
The story is set in Post War London and tells of the search for missing Nazi loot which was brought into England by the mysterious, vicious criminal Dumetrius, his gorgeous girlfriend Hedy Bergner, and Yottie Bleem, a butcher who thinks murder is fun.
An interesting and distinctive feature of this program is the theme melody. Each episode opens with a few bars of whistling, the tune of which is then taken up by a full concert orchestra. The whistling of this theme serves throughout the story to identify Dumetrius and it is "instrumental" to the dramatic finale.
Dossier on Dumetrius was incredibly popular; in New Zealand the Members of Parliament rose early to be able to hear the final episode.
