BBC 7 - Hancock's half Hour.

This evening I listened to the above. It starred the usual mob: Sid James, Kenneth Williams and Hancock himself, all playing different roles. I've never heard anything so funny, and the scripts are great. Highly recommended. Brilliant stuff.

One of the great things I found about the NaimUniti is that it has podcasts from lots of (particularly BBC) radio stations secreted away, and I listened to a HHH just the other day...

Actually, you probably had a better selection on there, since I could only find one.

And I am not a UnitiBoy, I'm just lookin' after it...

Re: BBC 7 - Hancock's half Hour.

Not sure whether its age or not, but the last couple of weeks I've listened to more and more of BBC 7 adaptations - simply engrossing.


Early hours of Sunday they had an adaptation of "The Lady Killers" (the original Ealing Studio version). I've got the film but radio brings a whole new dimension. It was probably the best hour and a half of loafing I've done in years.
