Many people consider Tony Hancock to be the finest comic actor of them all. November 2004 sees the 50th anniversary of his best-loved work, Hancock's Half-Hour, which began as a radio series, penned by the writers Galton and Simpson. Two years later, the first of 58 TV instalments had been screened, and Hancock's genius, coupled with Galton and Simpson's brilliant scripts, ensured that the show soon became a yardstick against which all subsequent British sitcoms have since been measured. Amazingly, no book has ever been written about the show. Fully authorised by Galton and Simpson, Fifty Years of Hancock's Half-Hour is a full history of the show, including how the show came about, behind-the-scenes stories from Hancock's fellow artists and members of the crew and production team, and the story of its demise. Incorporating extracts from the shows, the book will also feature photographs and a full listing of the radio and TV episodes.

Over 100 episodes of Hancock’s Half Hour were produced and broadcast, first on BBC radio in 1954 and then on TV in 1956. Receiving critical acclaim at the time, and making a star of the cantankerous Tony Hancock and roguish Sid James, Hancock’s Half Hour made history as the grumpy grandfather of British sitcom. Galton and Simpson, who also wrote the internationally successful Steptoe and Son, became writing legends. Thanks to them, we are able to enjoy these lost scripts from the early series. Stories range from observational comedy to the surreal and include Father Christmas being put on trial (part of a Christmas special), and Tony and Sid entering the ‘Mr East Cheam’ beauty competition.Not only are the scripts transcribed in their entirety, but we also show where some amendments were made, and the text is peppered with photos of the cast and background information.A great gift for Hancock fans young and old, as well as followers of comedy classics.

‘‘ Jimmy Edwards was a Great British Entertainer ’’ Ken Dodd ‘‘ Not merely a peculiarly British comedian but an authentic English character ’’ The Times The holder of the Distinguished Flying Cross, in recognition of his World War Two career with the RAF, Jimmy Edwards came to fame as an exuberant and bombastic, trombone-playing comedian in the 1940s, with early success at London’s Windmill Theatre. He went on to star on radio in Take It from Here and on television in Whacko! as the cane-happy headmaster of a run-down school for the sons of gentlemen. He was definitely politically incorrect and audiences loved him for it. While Jimmy authored two autobiographies, Wake Up at the Back There!: It’s Jimmy Edwards is the first book-length study of the comedian, providing both a full biography and a critical appraisal. For the first time, the full Jimmy Edwards story is told, with documentation on his relationship with his family, his domestic life, his “outing” as gay, and the man in his life. Jimmy Edwards was a complex human being, who embraced alcoholism perhaps as a means of handling his homosexuality. Ultimately, the gay life proved more of a concern to Jimmy than to his audience, while the drinking helped create a persona that the same audience loved and accepted. Presently and sadly, it would seem that Jimmy’s homosexuality has tended to diminish his legacy not only as a major British comedian but also as a genuine World War Two hero.
