Summary

Galton and Simpson have chosen another selection of favourite episodes from the classic radio series.

The Conjurer sees Hancock taking up magic, and hired by Sid to put on a show at Dartmoor Prison. Little does he know that it's only a front for an escape plan. In Cyrano de Hancock, Sid is besotted with Miss Pugh, and asks for Hancock's helpin expressing his love, while The Diary finds Hancock looking back at 1956, and falling into a reverie where he imagines himself as a surgeon, a lion tamer, and a test pilot. Finally, in The Impersonator, Hancock hears an actor in a cornflake commercial imitating his voice, and promptly takes the impersonator to court. Once again, the master of misery is supported by a star cast including Sid James, Bill Kerr, Kenneth Williams, and Hattie Jacques, and four sparkling scripts by the masters of mirth, Galton and Simpson.

Laughter prompts

Unfortunately, Hancock's collection is hardly audibly because of constant laughter prompts meant to remind the audience when to laugh.
