A Passion For Horror
The Sealed Book
(Old Radio Show)
About the Show
The Sealed Book radio series was originally aired between March 18th and September 9th, 1945. The show was produced and directed by Jock MacGregor and every Sunday night listeners could tune in and listen for the sound of the great gong that heralded another strange and exciting tale from the sealed book.
The shows had a half hour slot between 10:30pm and 11pm. The stories from the pages of the great sealed were a mixture of horror and mystery. Or, as MacGregor described them:
"Tales of every kind, tales of murder, of madness, of dark deeds strange and terrible beyond all belief."
The scripts were written by Robert Arthur and David
Kogan, who were also responsible for penning the tales for The Mysterious Traveller
radio series, so the stories in the Great Sealed Book were actually
reworked versions of stories that had already been aired on the other
