Hancock's Half Century

Hancock Anniversary Special

To celeberate the 50th anniversary of the first episode of Hancock's Half Hour, Hancock fan and former Radio 1 stalwart, Adrian Juste interviewed Ray Galton and Alan Simpson at the Radio Academy a few weeks ago.

It is a very entertaining and informative interview, and a great opportunity to hear those revered writers talking about how the programme was created and their working relationship with Tony.
