5.0 out of 5 stars The BBC might be ripping us off, but Hancock isn't...., 2 Nov 2007
This review is from: The Tony Hancock BBC Collection (8 Disc Box Set) [DVD] [1956] (DVD)
He's the lad himself, for my money the greatest comedy actor (I can't go with him a a comedian, as this is more than just a comedian at work) this country has produced. A man, who in his pauses, made not saying something on the radio funnier than any wisecrack...but this is his television work and although I think his best work was sound only, you have to go a long way to get comedy as fresh as most of Galton and Simpson's scripts on display here....I love these programmes as well as the man, he was searching for truth in comedy and he found it, if only he'd realised it. Yes, this package is ripping us off, but Hancock didn't, he always gave us his everything, and much of it that exists is here and it's life changing...50 years ago and now.....So, eyes down for a full house....

I have to disagree just a tad here because what is interesting is how much the tv stuff works as sound-only. I discovered Hancock on the radio and was a fan for 20 odd years before I discovered that stuff like Sunday Afternoon and the Blood Donor or the Missing Page were actually TV stuff originally and not radio shows!

I actually prefer listening to the radio shows to watching them on television! (Though I am a big fan of both.)
