21st Precinct - The Brother (04-14-54)  


The Brother (Aired April 14, 1954)
21st Precinct was one of the realistic police drama series of the early- to mid-1950's that were aired in the wake of DRAGNET. Hard-boiled private detective series that often portrayed police as inept or incompetent were losing favor. NBC's Dragnet had proven that a realistic police show could attract and hold an audience. In 1953 CBS decided to use New York City as the backdrop for their own half-hour police series and focus on the day-to- day operations of a single police precinct. Actual cases would be used as the basis for stories. It was mentioned in each episode's closing by the announcer that, "Twenty-first Precinct is presented with the official cooperation of the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association an organization of more than 20,000 members of the Police Department, City of New York." THIS EPISODE: April 14, 1954. "The Brother" - CBS network origination, AFRTS rebroadcast. The music fill has been deleted.

Malung – orten som satte skinnmodet på Sverigekartan  

Vid infarten till Malung står en stor skylt som hälsar välkommen till "världens skinncentrum". I veckans Stil reser vi till orten i Dalarna som har blivit känd för sin skinnindustri. Malung har varit centrum för Sveriges skinnindustri i flera hundra år. När Carl von Linné kom till Malung, på sin Dalaresa år 1734, blev han djupt imponerad av ortsbornas flitiga och flinka sätt att tillreda "allmogens ludna kläder".Många år senare, under skinnföretagen i Malungs storhetstid, på 1950- och 60-talet, fanns här runt 150 olika företag på samma gång - allt från stora fabriker med många anställda till hemmaskräddare som satt i sina små hus och sydde jackor och handskar.Vid den här tiden blev design ett allt viktigare element. Från att ha tillverkat mer traditionella arbetsplagg, som skinntröjor, handskar och bryggarfrackar, började man nu följa modets utveckling i Paris och många företag anställde utbildade designers för att kunna hänga med i modets trendsvängningar. Skinnindustrin i Malung hade blivit till modeindustri.Idag ser situationen dock lite annorlunda ut. Det finns numera endast runt femton skinnföretag kvar i Malung, men arvet och traditionen hålls fortfarande vid liv, något som inte minst märks på bygdens många skinnbutiker - ett populärt stopp för turister på väg mot fjällens skidmarker.I veckans program blickar vi både framåt och bakåt, mot historien. Vi besöker PG Elfström, ett gammalt familjeföretag som idag är det enda skinnföretaget i Malung som fortfarande har kvar sin produktion i stan - en bit utanför centrum ligger deras lilla fabrik. Vi besöker också företaget Jofama som grundades i Malung 1926 av Niss Oskar Jonsson. Idag satsar företaget stort på designsamarbeten med svenska kändisar. Vi träffar Victor Mir Ahmadi som har studerat på Skinnskolan i Malung, men betyder det nödvändigtvis att man får jobb inom stadens skinnindustri? Vi tittar även närmare på konflikten mellan raggare och punkare i 1980-talets Malung - två subkulturer där just skinn spelat en stor roll när det handlar om stil. Och så pratar vi med Carina Klar som driver en skinnbutik som hon vill ska representera det Nya Malung och samtidigt vara en plats dit alla är välkomna.Programledare den här veckan är Erik Sjölin.--Vill ni veta mer om Malungs skinnindustri kan ni besöka www.malungsskinn.se. Bakom sidan står Hans Öjes, född och uppvuxen i Malung där hans familj drev skinnföretag. Syftet med sidan är att dokumentera Malungs skinnindustri och dess historia. Han har grävt djupt i arkiven, genom att åka runt till till folk på bygden och samla ihop sparad information i form av dokument, tidningsartiklar, klädetiketter, reklamannonser och fotografier. I sina efterforskningar har Hans Öjes hittat namnet på 235 skinnföretag som vid olika tidpunkter har varit aktiva i Malung.

reminisce  

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for February 3, 2016 is:

reminisce • \rem-uh-NISS\  • verb

: to indulge in the process or practice of thinking or telling about past experiences

Examples:

Justin met up with some of his college buddies to reminisce about old times.

"Most of us have a comfort food we eat when we are reminiscing, sad or depressed." — Marion Goldberg, The Poughkeepsie (New York) Journal, 16 Dec. 2015

Did you know?

Reminisce and its relative reminiscence come from the mind—that is to say, they come from the Latin word for "mind," which is mens. A root related to mens teamed up with the prefix re- to create the Latin verb reminisci ("to remember"), an ancestor of both words. Reminisce is one of several English verbs starting with re- that mean "to bring an image or idea from the past into the mind." Others in this group include remember, recall, remind, and recollect. Reminisce distinguishes itself from the others by implying a casual recalling of experiences long past, often with a sense of nostalgia.
