Automatic tellers and electronic banking are so much part of modern life that it is hard to remember there was a time when radio commercials were needed to explain the benefits of a cash card, branded here as a "Handicard."
This series of radio commercials featuring the "Famous Four" are in the vein of the 1980s British TV comedy skits that spoofed Enid Blyton's "Famous Five" series of children's books.
The characters act out several scenarios in which a Handicard proves useful in their adventures.
