Hancock's Half Hour: Sid's Mystery Tours / The Poetry Society

Tony Hancock, Sid James, Bill Kerr and Warren Mitchell star in two classic episodes written by Ray Galton and Alan Simpson, which showcase the master of misery at his best. The Poetry Society: An evening with a group of Hancock's new avant-garde friends produces gems of abstract poetry, not only from the group but also from Sid and Bill. Sid's Mystery Tours: Sid talks Hancock into becoming the director of his guided tours company - but it doesn't even possess a coach. Vintage Beeb: classic albums first available as BBC LPs, now on CD for the first time ever. 1 CD. 50 mins.
