CD: The Classic Hancock Collection
'Hancock's Half Hour' was one of the most successful series ever made. From 1954 to 1961, the BBC broadcast 101 radio episodes and 59 television episodes. Hancock’s impeccable timing and brilliantly subtle shifts in intonation made him a major star - and with his generally morose attitude, bleak view of life and ideas above his station, he was the pompous dreamer whose aspirations were constantly thwarted. Ably supported (and irritated) by Sid James, Kenneth Williams, Hattie Jacques and Bill Kerr, this is Hancock at his superlative, hilarious best.
Featuring 8 classic comedy sketches from his radio show, including:
The Radio Ham; The Blood Donor; The Wild Man Of The Woods; Sunday Afternoon At Home; The Publicity Photograph; East Cheam Drama Festival; The Threatening Letters; The Secret Life Of Anthony Hancock (extract from the ‘Test Pilot’ – taken from ‘The Diary’).
