Scope and content

Series consists of materials related to Norman Creighton's CBC radio program "The Gillans" which aired from 1942 to 1949, including original and revised scripts; subject and episode indexes to scripts; plotting, drama, and character notes; as well as a promotional image of cast members. Indexes are only available for scripts dating from 1942 to 1946. The original scripts are carbon copies and require careful handling, many of the early ones are also spotted and appear to have some water damage. Most scripts are numbered in sequence and arranged in this order. Emergency scripts were often used when one or more characters were unable to perform. Although filed in sequence, the use of emergency scripts often resulted in misnumbering of episodes. Series includes the following subseries: 1. Scripts 2. Indexes 3. Plotting sheets and notes.
