"Hancock's Half Hour" ran on the BBC for 7 series. Anthony Aloysius St John Hancock (played by Tony Hancock) was a loser who's plans and aspirations were being continually ruined by bad luck, Sidney Balmoral James or, more often than not, by his own pomposity and ambition.

Tony Hancock then left the BBC to produce a 13 part series of " Hancock " for ITV and this was followed a few years later by Hancock's , in which he played the manager of a London night club.
