Alan Melville was a playwright, revue author and lyricist. He wrote no radio plays but some of his stage plays were adapted for radio.

He was a prolific contributor to West End revues which dominated the lighter side of West End theatre. He wrote gentle satire which poked mischievous fun at the middle classes.

He died in 1983.
