"The Pressure Pak Show" - Jack Davey (ATN-7, 1957)
I don't usually upload complete programs, but this one's of interest (and public domain). It's an episode of Jack Davey's "Pressure-Pak Show", broadcast on Sydney's ATN-7, notable as the last episode featuring former Quiz Kid and later noted Professor, Yvonne Cossart.
