Few Australian radio serials have had the enduring popularity of Yes, What?. A total of 520 episodes were broadcast on Adelaide radio station 5AD with the first going to air on 23 June 1936 and continuing until December 1940. Originally titled The Fourth Form at St Percy’s, it was based on an English radio series called, 'The Fourth Form at St Michael’s'. The show was written and produced by, and starred, Adelaide lawyer and actor Rex ‘Waca’ Dawe who played the Headmaster of St Percy’s with a small number of other cast members playing his students in the Fourth Form. The series was being broadcast nationally by 1938 and 300 episodes are still available through Grace Gibson Productions for broadcast on commercial stations. Sony released CD box sets of the serial in the 2000s.
