Hancock’s 43 Minutes, BBC TV series, Christmas Special, 1957

Personally I’m going to miss my weekly Hancock fix on the radio, when next week the latest series of Missing Hancocks comes to an end next Monday 21st December, being broadcast 60 years to the day since it’s original transmission, but it’s Christmas so we mooched around for a Hancock Christmas Special and came across this episode from the third BBC TV series.  At this time we weren’t littered with special Christmas episodes, were Galton and Simpson in at the beginning of somthing else?

Summary

In a complete departure from the usual show, Hancock presents his own variety show from the BBC Television Theatre, but he has asked Sid to provide all the acts!
