Hancock's half hour ( Visual )
3 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member 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
