+ PURSUIT (CBS 1949 - 1952) was a detective series that presented the cases of the fictional Scotland Yard Inspector Peter Black. (The leading character was called Inspector Harvey in the audition show and the first episode.) The Inspector was a dedicated policeman, a man hunter, who once on the case, would not rest until the wrongdoer was brought to justice. Black was assisted in cases by Sgt. Moffet. The series was unusual in that it featured dual narration. Starting in the Spring of 1950, Bill Johnstone provided the opening and closing narrations and sometimes, bridges between commercials. Inspector Black furnished the change of scenes and overall case narrations. Standard Opening: Spoken by the Narrator: "PURSUIT. "A criminal strikes and fades quickly back into the shadow of his own dark world. . . and then, the man from Scotland Yard, the famous Inspector Peter Black, and the relentless, dangerous pursuit. . When man hunts man!" Click here to read more about Pursuit
