AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'When television broadcasting began in Australia in 1956, opportunities for local dramatists were scarce. Within a few years, however, television had swamped radio drama and writers could see that their best chance to reach an audience lay in this new technology. Dr Susan Lever, recipient of the Archives' 2010 Frederick Watson Fellowship, looks at script holdings to assess the role of Australian creative writers in ABC television drama of the 1960s and 1970s.'
