    Suspense premiered in 1942 and soon became known for its inventive writing and for casting well-known stars in offbeat roles. In 1947, CBS decided to take a gamble: Suspense was turned into a full-hour Saturday night feature, hosted by actor and occasional star Robert Montgomery. Many of the hour-long shows were movie adaptations, and with the permission of the original writers, several earlier programs were expanded to accommodate the increased length.

    Everybody knows there were no radio announcers onboard the Niña, Pinta, or Santa Maria (or from ancient Greece, medieval France, or the Battle of Gettysburg either!), but you will be transported back in time anyway as the show "broadcasts" from the ships, the shore, and Spain. The dialogue is very believable, historically accurate, and very much in character. It is apparent that the producers of this show did their homework!
