The Lost Hancocks: Vacant Lot
Two long-lost radio scripts from the 1950s written for comedian Tony Hancock by acclaimed writer Larry Stephens.
Entitled Vacant Lot, the series focused on life in the dull faded fictional seaside town of Churdley Bay, where the blundering, slightly pompous and barely tolerated Hancock aspires to better his lot.
Despite featuring a supporting cast of colourful characters (with actors like Peter Sellers, Spike Milligan and Carry On’s Kenneth Connor all mooted for roles), Vacant Lot lay buried in the BBC archives ... until now!
With full cast including impressionist James Hurn (BBC2's Dead Ringers, Hancock's Half Hour) as Tony Hancock, and Janice Connolly (Phoenix Nights, Coronation Street, Mrs Barbara Nice).
