Dramatisations of episodes from the long-running children’s radio serial of the 1940s, performed with kitschy aplomb, are juxtaposed with scenes of everyday life in early postwar urban Australia in such a way as to underline the racism and sexism of the time. Cast includes Jojn Flaus, Alistair Forge, Sue World, Don Munro, Jim Howard, Christine Kerner, Peter Lane.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
