Fifty years ago, the first episode of Hancock was broadcast on radio. Few realised then that the adventures of Tony Hancock and his chums would become such a massive, lasting success. Russell Davies explores the on- and off-air relationships between Tony and his "helpers", Kenneth Williams, Bill Kerr, Sid James and Hattie Jacques among them.
With archive and new interviews, and clips from the shows.
