Featuring the police officers of Culver City, California, Nightwatch was the first show featuring real-life police officers on the
job. The show was created and hosted by Donn Reed, a long-time radio man. 1950's Police CarReed rode along with police officers as they performed their jobs.
Radio listeners of Nightwatch heard everything from sanitarium escapees to burglars to attempted murder. It was a slice-of-life that most people never heard
before and were only too happy to listen to on the radio as long as it stayed on the radio.
