Writer of Australia’s longest-running radio series awarded OAM

Doug Edwards, the creator of Australia’s longest-running radio series, How Green Was My Cactus, has been awarded an OAM in today’s Australia Day Honours for ’service to radio as a comedy writer and creator’.

The satirical series about politics and people stars Keith Scott and Robyn Moore.

The program is the longest-running radio serial in Australian history (passing the ABC radio drama Blue Hills, which ran for twenty-seven years) and is the longest-running radio serial still being broadcast in Australia today.

The program is carried on over fifty radio stations nationally.
