Note

NOTES:
STORY TITLE: Story titles do not appear on the scripts until the beginning of the NBC 30 minute series (the story I have numbered 18). The first 4 stories have no titles in the Stanford script volumes, stories 5-7 have handwritten titles on the volume flyleaves, and stories 11-17 have typed titles on the volume flyleaves. [In the case of story 11, the Yolo County was typed and the Battle of the Century added, handwritten, after it]. Story titles in {braces} are original (or at least earlier) titles.
SEQUENCE NUMBER: Stories were not numbered in the NBC or CBS series - the numbers are mine according to the sequence as I believe it to be. N.B. - some sequence numbers are omitted. These are stories which were broadcast, but the scripts were allegedly not written by Morse, and are not in the Stanford volumes. For your information, the missing titles (some of these, and their exact order, are uncertain, but are my judgement based on internal or external evidence) are -
8 Flight to Death
9 Murder, Hollywood Style
10 Incident Concerning Death
31 The Graves of Whamperjaw, Texas
32 Murder is the Word for it
38 The African Jungle Mystery
44 The Case of the Terrified Comedian
45 The Man Who Hated to Shave
46 The Temple of Vampires (2nd version)
48 The Monster in the Mansion (2nd version)
Some of the missing sequence numbers correspond with missing volume numbers - this may or may not be significant.
EPISODES & NUMBERS: The first number is the number of episodes in the story, and the next pair, if any, are the actual episode numbers. The episodes in the first 15 minute (NBC) series were numbered sequentially as shown, and again (restarting from 1) for the 15 minute CBS series. None of the 30 minute episodes have episode numbers. There are some discrepancies in correspondence among broadcast dates, numbers of episodes, and episodes numbers, as detailed below.
BOOK & VOLUME: These come directly from the bound volumes. Note that there are two books numbered 30, but with different volume numbers.
DISCREPANCIES RESOLVED:
A There are two different, consecutive episodes in the NBC series both numbered 258 in story 16.
B There was no episode broadcast 11/4/40, election eve; thus the 13 episodes of story 19 cover 14 weeks.
C The script for the first episode of story 33 is numbered 114. However, the script numbered 123 is followed (in the story) by one numbered 126, and I assume (from other evidence) a numbering error occurred between episodes 86 and 113 which was later corrected, and that the numbering given above is correct.
D A numbering error midway through story 36 makes it appear that that story ends with episode 195 and story 37 begins with episode 196, but the error was corrected midway through story 37, and the numbering given above is correct.
E No episode was broadcast 12/31/43.
F The next five episodes after 6/12/44 were re-dated - perhaps the program was pre-empted on that date.
