The Missing Hancocks Series 3The Missing Hancocks
(Series 3)

Kevin McNally and Andy Secombe star in five more brand-new recordings of original Hancock's Half Hour scripts by Ray Galton and Alan Simpson.

Hancock's Half Hour was an enormously popular radio sitcom in the 1950s, but several of the episodes were not retained in the BBC Sound Archive and are believed to be lost. They've now been recreated by BBC Radio 4.

In these first three episodes - 'A Holiday in France', 'The Racehorse' and 'The Crown Jewels' - Andy Secombe plays his father, Harry, who himself deputised for an absent Tony Hancock in the original run.

In 'A Visit to Swansea' and 'The Three Sons', Kevin McNally resumes the role of "the lad 'imself". Among the supporting cast are Simon Greenall, Kevin Eldon and Robin Sebastian.
