Many elements of the show satirised contemporary life in Britain, parodying aspects of show business, commerce, industry, art, politics, diplomacy, the police, the military, education, class structure, literature and film.Hancock’s Half Hour is a radio comedy, and later television comedy, series of the 1950s and 60s written by Ray Galton and Alan Simpson. The series starred Tony Hancock, with Sid James; the radio version also co-starred, at various times, Moira Lister, Andrée Melly, Hattie Jacques, Bill Kerr and Kenneth Williams.
Comedian Tony Hancock starred in the show, playing an exaggerated and much poorer version of his own character and lifestyle, Anthony Aloysius St John Hancock, a down-at-heel comedian living at the dilapidated 23 Railway Cuttings in East Cheam.
The series was influential in the development of the situation comedy, with its move away from radio variety towards a focus on character development.

Classic British comedy – Love this app!Works well. Pity the episodes aren’t available for download so they can be listened to offline. However, for $0.99 for access to all 100+ episodes, it’s a steal.Very pleased to have found a piece of my childhood (would listen to episodes on the way to school in my teens) and will be recommending this app to family and friends.
Goons – They’ll never make a program like this again.You can’t get the wood you know!!!!!Tonyod
