The umbrella term under which all plays that took part in the ABC Play Competition for 1940 were broadcast. Plays were clearly marked as part of this series, and were numbered for broadcast, enabling listeners to vote on them. All radio plays submitted to the ABC between 1 January and 30 April 1940 were eligible, and listeners awarded marks to each play after they were produced and broadcast. The top three plays were eligible for cash bonuses, but the ABC paid the usual commission rates for all plays that it produced as part of the series. Seventeen plays were produced, although some sources suggest as many as 333 additional plays were received.
