Director: Peter Luby

Dramatisations of episodes from the long-running children s radio serial of the 40s performed with kitschy aplomb are juxtaposed with scene* of everyday life In early post-war urban Australia in such a way as to underline the racism and sexism of the time. An ambitious entertaining and original film.
