Hancock's half hour by Tony Hancock( file )
5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 22 libraries worldwide
Galton and Simpson have chosen another selection of favourite episodes from the classic radio series. The conjurer sees Hancock taking up magic, and hired by Sid to put on a show at Dartmoor Prison. Little does he know that it's only a front for an escape plan. In Cyrano de Hancock, Sid is besotted with Miss Pugh, and asks for Hancock's help in expressing his love, while The diary finds Hancock looking back at 1956, and falling into a reverie where he imagines himself as a surgeon, a lion tamer and a test pilot. Finally, in The impersonator, Hancock hears an actor in a cornflake commercial imitating his voice, and promptly takes the impersonator to court. Once again, the master of misery is supported by a star cast including Sid James, Bill Kerr, Kenneth Williams and Hattie Jacques, and four sparkling scripts by the masters of mirth, Galton and Simpson

Hancock's half hour ( visu )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 15 libraries worldwide
Tony Hancock's premature death in 1968 at the age of forty-four deprived the entertainment world of perhaps the greatest post-war comedian to have emerged from this country. It makes his eighty hours of material originally broadcast by the BBC on radio and television between 1954 and 1961 seem all the more priceless and rare. With his impeccable timing and brilliantly subtle shifts in intonation, he could create sound picture that bore the unmistakable hallmark of a genius. Supported by Galton and Simpson's marvellous scripts and by Kenneth Williams, Sid James, Hattie Jacques, Bill Kerr and the rest of the studio cast, the work of Tony Hancock lives on

Mayday! A motor yacht is holed beneath the waterline off the coast of Sierra Leone; The lift -"Eight persons is eight persons - you'll have to get out"; and The blood donor - Perhaps the best-loved of all Hancock episodes
