Scrooge The Miser (Christmas) 1953 *The Exact Date Is Unknown.

The Caltex Theater was an Australian Drama Anthology which aired from 1948 to 1960. It was a continuation of the Macquarie Radio Theatre (which began in 1941, with a name change in 1948). One-hour episodes aired weekly on Sunday evening at 8:00 PM. The cast included Richard Davies, Lyndall Barbour, Sheila Sewell, Alan White, Patricia Kennedy, and Keith Eden. Many of the productions were adaptations of popular movies, similar to Lux Radio Theatre in the U.S. At least 490 episodes were aired, but I know of only 6 that survive. Some of the plays include: ‘Crime and Punishment’, ‘Lass of Richmond Hill’, ‘Iris’, ‘Good-bye Mr Chips’, ‘The Petrified Forest’.
