Australia's Amateur Hour was an Australian old time radio program, a talent contest, which was broadcast from 1940 to 1958, which also aired on television from 1957 to 1958.
The television version was compered by Terry Dear, and ran from August 1957 to February 1958. It aired on TCN-9 in Sydney and HSV-7 in Melbourne. The radio version outlived the television version by several months.
Some episodes of the radio version are held by National Film and Sound Archive. Although the television version was kinescoped so it could be shown in both Sydney and Melbourne, it is not known if any such recordings still exist today.
