TV version of the popular BBC radio show of the same name, with Tony Hancock as the modern man of the world (in his own eyes). Sid James is there to bring him back to earth. Written by

The programs may appear extremely dated now but the influence of Hancock on British comedy is still considerable. As is so common in good comedy his character is a self deluding loser who places himself far higher up the social ladder than anyone else ever will (Steptoe, Rigsby, Fawlty, Blackadder and Partridge to name a few would later carry on this tradition)
So don't let the grainy pictures put you off, and there are plenty of the excellent radio shows availble, it's been nearly half a century, but they're definately still a worthwhile half hour.
