Product description

Ray Galton and Alan Simpson's select four of their favourite radio episodes. In the first of their quartet of classics, "Sid's Mystery Tours", Sid talks Hancock into becoming the director of his guided tours company - but it doesn't even possess a coach. "The Wild Man of the Woods" shows Hancock's desire to get away from it all. It leads him to camp first in a bus shelter on Clapham Common, and then in a bit of forest rented from Sid. "23 Railway Cuttings" is a scene of boredom and inactivity as the occupants try to while away a British Sabbath in Sunday Afternoon at Home whereas, in "The Poetry Society", an evening with a group of Hancock's new avant-garde friends produces gems of abstract poetry, not only from the group but also from Sid and Bill. Featuring a star cast that includes Sid James, Bill Kerr, Warren Mitchell, Kenneth Williams, Hattie Jacques and Fenella Fielding, these are four very special episodes which show the master of misery at his very best, as chosen by Galton and Simpson, the masters of mirth.
