Summary

The complete final series of the ground-breaking BBC Radio comedy starring Tony Hancock - plus five bonus episodes.
Created by Ray Galton and Alan Simpson in 1954, Hancock's Half Hour was the radio vehicle that made Tony Hancock a household name. Each week listeners would be admitted to the sometimes fantastical, sometimes mundane life of 'the lad 'imself'. Aided and abetted by Sid James, Bill Kerr Kenneth Williams and Hattie Jacques, Hancock would enter into the spirit of each episode with characteristic dolefulness.
This volume contains all 14 shows from the sixth radio series, collected together for the first time, including previously unpublished restored versions of 'The Waxwork', 'The Fête' and 'The Poetry Society'. Also included is the 1958 Christmas Special episode and four re-recordings made for the BBC Transcription Service. Among these hilarious Half Hours, Hancock enters an eating competition; sets out to save a local landmark; becomes the director of Sid's guided tours company and enjoys an evening of abstract verse with his avant-garde friends.
The episodes are: 'Bill and Father Christmas' (1958 Christmas Special); 'The 13th of the Month' (Transcription Services Episode One); 'The New Secretary' (Transcription Services Episode Two); 'The Ballet Visit' (Transcription Services Episode Three); 'The Election Candidate' (Transcription Services Episode Four); 'The Smugglers'; 'The Childhood Sweetheart'; 'The Last Bus Home'; 'The Picnic'; 'The Gourmet'; 'The Elopement'; 'Fred's Pie Stall'; 'The Waxwork'; 'Sid's Mystery Tours'; 'The Fête'; 'The Poetry Society'; 'Hancock in Hospital'; 'The Christmas Club' and 'The Impersonator'. Duration: 9 hours 30 mins approx.

Last of the Hancock's 😣

Having listened to the last Hancock series I can see why it was time to move on. It just wasn't the same without Hattie Jacques and Kenneth Williams. It went out with a great episode though.

Nothing new

No new story lines from past 5 series. they have changed a few of the actors that's all the difference.
