4.0 out of 5 stars Well, that's marvellous!, 20 Jan 2009
This review is from: The Tony Hancock BBC Collection (8 Disc Box Set) [DVD] [1956] (DVD)
I know a lot of people were disappointed in this set, but that seems mostly to be based on the fact that they'd already bought previous releases, and whilst that is an unpleasant aspect of the modern commercial world it should not detract from the fact that this is a thoroughly enjoyable set and I really enjoyed it. All the surviving episodes of the BBC's "Hancock's Half Hour" and "Hancock" in one convenient package. For me, it was worth it for the "Face to Face" interview alone (which I'd never before seen in it's entirety) but there was also the opportunity to enjoy episodes that I personally had not seen before. "Hancock's 43 Minutes" is an enjoyable bonus and gives a comic insight into a lost world of TV variety, and alongside that you get 37 episodes of comedy gold from an era that is too often overlooked in the release market. My only gripe is that I would have liked the prints to have been restored a bit more - maybe they will be on the inevitable later releases - but, on the whole, I love it.
