Hancock: The 'Lost' TV Episodes - The Flight Of The Red Shadow/The Wrong Man

"Hancock: The 'Lost' TV Episodes: The Flight of The Red Shadow/The Wrong Man" is two of the long 'lost' Hancock TV Episodes recently discovered by the Hancock Appreciation Society. First broadcast in 1959 as part of "Tony Hancock's 4th BBC TV Series". The master recording tapes were then subsequently wiped as was routine for many TV and Radio broadcasts right up until the late 1970s. Fortunately fans made their own off air copies by a variety of methods including hot wiring their TV sets to reel to reel recorders.

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!

First released: Thursday 2nd July 2009
