Galton and Simpson’s 60th

In the lead up to the 60th anniversary of Hancock’s Half Hour we’ve been running a series of posts looking back decade by decade at some of the sitcoms that have aired over the last 60 years.  This week we reach the 1970’s, and countdown all the way to that all important anniversary on 2nd November.  Events on the site reach a climax as we speak to Roy Clarke, tomorrow,  Carla Lane, Wednesday and on Friday, Saturday and Sunday the two writers at the centre of all this Ray Galton and Alan Simpson discuss Comedy Playhouse, Hancock and Hancock’s Half Hour.  Perhaps this might be the last time all these writers come together as part of such a comedy landmark.
