In 1960, Tony Hancock was interviewed by John Freeman for the BBC’s Face To Face. This was a series of in depth interviews. In the week leading up to the 60th anniversary of the first broadcast of Hancock’s Half Hour on BBC Radio and the the first episode of ‘The Missing Hancocks’ on BBC Radio 4 on October 31st at 11.30, we thought we should put it on the site.
The interview shows a very different Hancock to that of his comic persona.
Interviewer: John Freeman
Original Transmission Date: June 1960
Tomorrow: We’re looking back at the 1970’s, Wednesday we talk to Carla Lane, bookmark us for the weekend as we talk to Ray Galton and Alan Simpson
