'Richard Lane, who wrote 'Pointless Design,' now offers another radio play dealing with the life of actors and radio people in Sydney. The main interest of 'The Remittance Man' is its study of an old actor who, in spite of triumphs on the London stage many years previously, cannot get work on the stage or in radio. He is reduced to making advertisement records for a living and finally cannot even net that kind of commission.'
'June Programme in Full Swing', Sunday Mail, 11 June 1939, p.29.
First broadcast (nationally) by the ABC on Friday 23 June 1939, from 8pm.
