Product description

Tony Hancock stars in two long-lost episodes from the classic BBC TV series. This title includes "The Flight of the Red Shadow" - 23 January 1959, and "The Wrong Man" - 6 March 1959 that was broadcast live in 1959. 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. "The Wrong Man" sees Hancock and Sid called in to take part in a police identity parade. However, when a witness picks Hancock out for the burglary of a high street tobacconist, he has only days to clear his name. Including special sleeve-notes detailing the making of the original episodes and explaining their recovery, these episodes are a valuable addition to the BBC's archive of Hancock comedy. It celebrates the 60th Anniversary of the Galton and Simpson writing partnership.
