First broadcast live in 1959 as part of Tony Hancock's 4th BBC TV Series, these rare recordings are made available for the first time in over fifty years.
In The Flight of the Red Shadow (aka Desert Song), Hancock is on the run from disgruntled members of the East Cheam Repertory Company. In order to escape, Hancock is forced to masquerade as the Maharaja of Renjipur, with disastrous consequences.
One of the long "lost" Hancock TV Episodes recently discovered by the Hancock Appreciation Society. 2009 is the 60th Anniversary of the Galton and Simpson writing partnership. Some of the lost episodes feature Ray and Alan in walk on parts as well as stars like John Le Mesurier, Arthur Mullard, Rolf Harris, and of course the inimitable Sid James and Anthony Aloysius St John Hancock!!
