The BBC Concert
A play for broadcasting by Coral Lansbury.
Presented by arrangement with the Australian Broadcasting Commission
The action takes place ashore and off the north-west coast of the Australian continent.
BBC programmes designed primarily for the United Kingdom are frequently shared by Commonwealth listeners either in direct transmission or by means of special transcriptions.
Tonight's play, produced in the studios of the Australian Broadcasting Commission with an all-Australian cast, reverses this friendly flow of 'invisible' exports and gives listeners at home a rare opportunity of comparing the work being done in the field of radio drama by our overseas friends. This recorded programme is being broadcast in exactly the form in which the play was originally presented to listeners in Australia.
To be repeated on Saturday at 2.10
