Confession is an American old-time radio crime drama anthology series. It was broadcast on NBC July 5, 1953 - September 13, 1953, as a summer replacement for Dragnet. Confession dramatized material from files of corrections departments from across the United States. Radio historian John Dunning compared Confession to Dragnet, writing, "Confession had a texture and sound not unlike Dragnet; indeed, the Dragnet influence was evident throughout." Although both programs featured crimes taken from real life, he added, "Dragnet began with the crime while Confession unfolded in reverse order." [wikipedia]
