Jack and Bill learn about computers
4 January 2012 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

FRAUD, a '68 episode of DRAGNET, has Joe & Bill dealing with disability fraud.

As usual in, an 'expert' gives Joe & Bill (and, us the viewer) an explanation of the specific issue.

This one is cool, because we learn about the new-fangeled world of - drum-roll - computers!

About 5 minutes is dedicated to explaining how these machines - the size of a room - take the information on cards, and sorts it.

At each step, Harvey Peterson, the 'supervisor of data-processing,' gives a breakdown, as we follow the cards, from the card-reader, magnetic tape, the 'memory - the central processing,' to MORE magnetic tape, then to the 'high-speed printer.'

Just for this portion of the episode (at one point, 'Mike' requests information at the 'console typewriter,' is seen 'communicating' with the computer) is a cool retro look back at a device that has since re-shaped the world, and, what once was an exotic 'device' the size of a room, requiring many people to operate, is now -as we all know - a common, every-day device, that can fit in a pocket, or, well... you know.

After the tech-tour, Jack & Bill just shake their heads in disbelief at this 'stuff.'

The rest of the story is typical DRAGNET, in form, and style.

But, as a look into the 'wayback machine,' FRAUD is top drawer.
