In the CBS TV crime show, NCIS, tonight, a terrorist group threatens to detonate a dirty bomb in Washington, D.C.  (Congressional punchlines are left as an exercise for the reader.)  

The NCIS team swings into action with their latest high-tech radiation equipment, like the 1960s surplus Civil Defense yellow CDV-700, with the grey cable to a GM detector, as shown in this screen capture from the preview:
The short preview video clip is at 

Note the sound effects coming from the CDV-700, which has no built-in speaker, and neither NCIS agent is wearing the single speaker headset that goes with the CDV-700.

I suspect there will be more Radsafe humor in tonight's episode.
