A guide to ScreenSound Australia's radio collection.
'Australia’s radio series play an important role in Australia’s cultural heritage, and are a rich and valuable resource for future generations. These radio series filled the air waves for some 40 years and included adventure, comedy, drama, children’s shows, chat shows, variety, quiz shows and soap operas of all types.
The National Film and Sound Archive’s collection includes substantial holdings of the radio series and serials broadcast in Australia from the 1930s through to the 1970s. Numerous sources were used to compile this listing of the Archive’s holdings, including auditioning of the radio transcription discs, scripts, label information, publicity material, and books published on the subject, trade periodicals and catalogues' (p.6).
