While doing computer work I sometime listen to old radio shows. Here are few that mention Amateur Radio.
Starting at 47:30.
“The Mutiny on the Bounty”. The classic sea story took place long before radio, but in a postscript to the story, Orson Welles talks to Dorothy Hall, a Ham operator who is credited with saving the residents of Pitcairn Island. The isolated paradise is the home of the survivors of the Bounty, cut off from the world. When an epidemic hits the island, Ham contact with Ms. Hall brings the aid and medicine needed.
On the Suspense episode “Cat and Mouse”, a pair of engineers working on a secret War project keep in contact over Ham radio, but during a broadcast one of the men is murdered!
