This was an obvious choice for dramatisation as the rapid turnover of towns and passengers would make a small lead cast possible, with good scope for a variety of plot situations and guest characters.'

1 form y separately published work icon They Lied to Henry Wilson Michael Plant , Sydney : Grace Gibson Productions , 1950 14796031 1950 single work radio play

'Henry Wilson was quite an ordinary man—his replica could be found in any city office—but that was until he was driven mad by jealousy and frustration, and he murdered. It was late one night when there was no one else in the office, except Mr. Dodds, the man who had always supplanted him. The opportunity was perfect, and Henry Wilson took it. It appeared to be a flawless crime: everything went according to plan. But Henry Wilson had reckoned without his conscience. As the net relentlessly closes in on him, the excitement and suspense are guaranteed to satisfy the most ardent thrill-fan.'
