Product Description

Ten further episodes, first transmitted in 1960, from the misanthropic comedian Tony Hancock's acclaimed sitcom, featuring guest performances from Sid James and Hattie Jacques.

Synopsis

Featuring every episode from the sixth series of Hancock's Half-Hour, first broadcast between March and May 1960. These were the last episodes to star Hancock's long-time comedy partner, Sid James.

"The Cold" - Hancock is on his sixth cold of the winter but not even Mrs Cravatte's less-than-orthodox remedies can help.
"The Missing Page" - Hancock is gripped by a pulp detective story. But the last page - where Johnny Oxford points the accusing finger - is missing.
"The Emigrant" - Hancock decides he's had enough of England and decides to emigrate. But are any of the colonies prepared to have him?
"The Reunion Party" - 'Kippers' Hancock has arranged a reunion booze-up for his old army pals. They were a wild and crazy bunch... 15 years ago.
"Sid in Love" - Sid's off his food. Even a chip sandwich can't help him forget his hopeless love for the girl on the 93 bus.
"The Babysitters" - Hancock and Sid are employed as baby-sitters in a very plush modern house with all the gadgets - hidden TV, remote-controlled curtains, electronic baby alarm...
"The Ladies Man" - "You've had a dance, a fish supper and a ride home. What more do you want?" Hancock books into the Mayfair Charm School for Lonely Men.
"The Photographer" - "Never use the word 'snap' to a professional photographer! You wouldn't ask Vaughn Williams if he'd knocked out a few tunes lately, would you? Symphonies, mate, and that's what this is - a symphony in emulsion."
"The East Cheam Centenary" - When the local council decides to stage a pageant to celebrate 100 years of East Cheam, Sid sees the chance to make a quick buck.
"The Poison Pen Letters" - Hancock revolts against a flood of hate mail, but discovers that they are all being posted from the post box right outside his front door.

Format: DVD
This was to be the last appearance of Hancock with Sid James - and must be valued as such. This 2 disc set contains 10 episodes, 2 of which, I consider to be the best ever written by Galton & Simpson. Firstly, The Missing page: In which the Lad himself toddles off to the library in search of a book entitled 'Lady Don't Fall Backwards'. Problems arise when the last page (revealing whodunit) is found to be absent...."maybe someone lit a fag with it" intones Sid. Secondly, The Reunion Party: Hancock arranges a get together for his old army pals....but times change and so do people. I particularly like the opening scene in the off-licence where Hancock returns his empties. If you only intend to buy one Hancock DVD - make it this one.

This DVD set contains some of the very best Hancock episodes: "Sid in Love", "The Reunion Party", "The Babysitters", "The Ladies Man" and the legendary "The Missing Page". Hancock was at his best with sparring partner Sid James and their on-screen love/hate relationship is best portrayed in "Sid in Love" where Hancock tries to help a love-sick and bashful Sid get off with the clippy of his dreams. Unfortunately, it all backfires on Hancock who gets a black eye for his troubles. In "The Reunion Party" Sid and Hancock vie with one another with fantastic tales of their wartime exploits. Great support from Hugh Lloyd, Johnny Vyvian and company.

10 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Friendlycard VINE VOICE on 6 Oct. 2007
Format: DVD
This excellent 2-disc set contains all ten episodes from the sixth series of Hancock's Half Hour, first broadcast between March and May 1960.

These episodes are:

1. The Cold
2. The Missing Page
3. The Emigrant
4. The Reunion Party
5. Sid In Love
6. The Babysitters
7. The Ladies Man
8. The Photographer
9. The East Cheam Centenary
10. The Poison Pen Letters

Several of these (such as "The Missing Page" and "The Photographer") are well-known, but there are some lesser-known gems here too, including "The Babysitters", "The Reunion" and "The East Cheam Centenary".

All in all, great stuff - a comic genius on top form.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on 22 Sept. 2009
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Volume Four is perhaps the best in the BBC's DVDs of the surviving episodes of Hancock's Half Hour - probably only The Best of Tony Hancock (taken from his final BBC series, Hancock, but irritatingly missing one episode) has it beat. Unlike most shows, the writing on Hancock's Half Hour actually improved the longer the show ran, despite Galton and Simpson writing more than 150 TV and radio episodes in barely half a decade. The ten episodes here are exceptionally good, with nearly every one a classic - The Cold, The Missing Page, The Emigrant, The Reunion Party and The Poison Pen Letters standing out in a strong field. No extras, but a great disc all the same.

I bought this as a fathers day present for one particular episode which my father did not have. He has now watched the whole dvd twice, so i would say that was enough praise for the dvd.
