3.0 out of 5 stars No hard feelings then? Yes, 8s 6d worth., 3 Jan. 2008
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Tony Hancock BBC Collection (8 Disc Box Set) [DVD] [1956] (DVD)
The beeb commerical department neglected to include a programme listing on the outer cover of this boxset (where no doubt it would have been seen and could inform a buyer's decision). Ironically this change from their earlier practice of including episode names and descriptions is one of few original things about this collection, which contains only one episode (The Succession: Son and Heir) not yet released to DVD. As with everything by Hancock/Galton/Simpson the episodes themselves are worthy of 5 stars, but as others have noted, if you've already bought previous releases you are paying a lot for a single episode. However, for anyone who doesn't already own this material, here is the programme list:

Disc 1: `The Alpine Holiday', `Air Steward Hancock, The Last Of The Many', `The Lawyer: The Crown vs Sidney James', 'Competitions: How To Win Money And Influence People' ,'There's An Airfield At The Bottom Of My Garden', 'Hancock's Forty-Three Minutes: The East Cheam Repertory Company: The Christmas Special'. ORIGINALLY RELEASED AS `HANCOCK'S HALF HOUR: VOL.1'

Disc 2: `Ericson the Viking', `The Set That Failed', `The New Nose', `The Oak Tree', `The Knighthood'. ORIGINALLY RELEASED AS HANCOCK'S HALF HOUR: VOL. 2

Disc 3: `The Economy Drive', `The Two Murderers', `Lord Byron Lived Here', `Twelve Angry Men', `The Train Journey'. ORIGINALLY RELEASED AS `HANCOCK'S HALF HOUR: VOL. 3' (DISC 1).

Disc 4: `The Cruise', `The Big Night', `The Tycoon', `Spanish Interlude', `Football Pools'. ORIGINALLY RELEASED AS `HANCOCK'S HALF HOUR: VOL. 3' (DISC 2).

Disc 5: 'The Cold', 'The Missing Page', 'The Emigrant', 'The Reunion Party', 'Sid In Love'. ORIGINALLY RELEASED AS `HANCOCK'S HALF HOUR: VOL. 4' (DISC 1).

Disc 6: 'The Baby Sitters', 'The Ladies Man', 'The Photographer', The East Cheam Centenary' and 'The Poison Pen Letters'. ORIGINALLY RELEASED AS `HANCOCK'S HALF HOUR: VOL. 4' (DISC 2).

Disc 7: `The Bedsitter', `The Bowmans', `The Radio Ham', `The Lift', `The Blood Donor'. ORIGINALLY RELEASED AS `THE VERY BEST OF HANCOCK'.

Disc 8: `The Succession: Son and Heir', `Face to Face: Tony Hancock Interview', PDF's of missing scripts.
