Premise:
This exceptional police crime fighting series contains stories based on true crime files. Originating as a radio series,
and later brought to television, you won't find better early TV police action. Violent and realistic for 50's television.
The "Still at Large" segment at the end of each episode showed wanted criminals. This could be the start of America's
"Most Wanted".

Background:
*Gang Busters has the distinction of being possibly the highest rated TV show to be canceled in the history of television.

"Gang Busters" alternated with early episodes of "Dragnet"
