In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the first television broadcast, this collection brings together all 37 surviving episodes (from the original canon of 56) of Hancock’s Half Hour and Hancock, from 1956 to 1961. This classic sitcom was written by Galton and Simpson and featured, of course, East Cheam's most famous resident, Tony Hancock.

DVD extras:
The Succession - Son & Heir
Face to Face: Tony Hancock Interview
Missing Scripts PDFs
3 Audio Commentaries with Ray Galton, Alan Simpson and Paul Merton

The set brings together a goldmine of Hancock’s television work, with the 37 episodes of Hancock’s Half Hour still in existence brought together. 17, sadly, are seemingly lost forever, although PDF files of the scripts of these episodes are included in the box, which proves to be a very welcome inclusion.
When it comes to the surviving content itself, though, what else can be said? Some of the material here is simply peerless, a splendid marriage of its superb leading star, blistering writing from Galton and Simpson, and a supporting cast that includes the likes of Sid James and Hattie Jacques. Backed up with fresh supplemental material, Hancock’s Half Hour is a British comedy icon, and there’s plenty of evidence why in this set.
A treat for fans of classic comedy young and old.

Old School or what - worth this price for the commentaries alone. 8)

Even though I think Hancock is pretty rubbish I'd buy this for the behind the scenes stuff.

For the generation who haven't heard of him. https://youtu.be/i9nCqSYeAVY:D

Love the radio series, remarkable how it still stands up. Shame the whole gang didn't get to go over to the TV show.

Great deal. Yes, the radio shows are superior but there are some classics that stand the test of time : The Bedsitter was groundbreaking and is still rarely equalled.

I went to a radio re-recording of some lost Hancock scripts at the BBC .Galton and Simpson were in the audience and when they were introduced every person in the room were on their feet and gave them a two minute standing ovation.
