UNKNOWN - "OUT OF THE NIGHT"


A radio horror anthology series that was aired in around 1946-1947 in Australia. There was also a USA version.

The stories were presented as true events, but would contain a supernatural element. Most stories would run for 12-14 minutes in length, though one story ran for 30 minutes.

There are two reported distributors, Grace Gibson for the US version (though one source does have her listed as Australian, and Charles Michelson, the Australian distributor.
