33 Half Moon came out of South Africa and was a radio sensation in its day. Similar in concept to the American 'Let George Do It', taking on all sorts of unusual cases,it had a totally different feel. The Chief of Assignments Unlimited was Aubrey Mason, and his most used operative was an American named Canon. The voice of Mason was Michael Todd, an extremely popular actor in South Africa. During its run in 1965-66, the show was written by Adrian Steed and then Douglas Laws.
