The General Motors Hour

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The General Motors Hour was an Australian radio and television drama series.


The radio series was a regular one hour drama broadcast over the Macquarie Radio Network at 8 pm on Thursays.[1] It is believed to have commenced in the late 1940s and lasted into the early 1960s. Producers included Robert Peach[2] and Harry Dearth.[3] The announcer was John Dease. 15 episodes are available on the Old Time Radio website.[4]


The television version of The General Motors Hour was a loosely scheduled occasional series which aired on Australian television from 1960 to 1962. The series aired on ATN-7 in Sydney and GTV-9 in Melbourne, as well as on other affiliated stations across Australia. The presentations ranged from adaptations of overseas stage plays and anthology episodes, to locally-written drama and a documentary.

Its first show was a production of The Grey Nurse Said Nothing.[5]

Three of the TV episodes - Suspect, Candida, and Shadow Of The Vine - had been produced by English producer Peter Cotes for HSV-7 in 1961, but were shelved due to lack of sponsorship. Sponsorship was provided by GM-H in 1962, and plays were run on HSV-7 and TCN-9 under the "General Motors Hour" title.[6][7]
