Not that I've ever seen it - I was born in 1962 - this answer is a neat example of how quickly one can find information on the internet nowadays with the help of Wikipedia. Use "Liste von Krimiserien", then sort every letter of the alphabet by year of first airing, look through series of the 1950's until you find the answer.

Correct. I didn't know it aired also in Germany. I grew up in the 50's watching this show, and now enjoying it in reruns.

2150 was Dan Mathews radio callsign, no matter what car he was driving. Actually, actor Broderick Crawford's driving license was suspended during those years, due to his drunk driving. Many of his roadway driving scenes were done on private property because of that.

Ah, the good old days.
