n this episode Martin, Tim and Jon chat about the impact of the introduction of the new medium of television in the 1950s, consider the impact of the launch of ITV, and wax lyrical about the adverts of the time and how they were rudely interrupted by the programmes. The four fans talk about the radio episodes The Television Set and The Impersonator and look at the television episode The Set That Failed. They pretend to understand how to build a television set, get briefly sidetracked by a ‘What the Butler Saw’ machine and carefully consider how many times to kick the set in order to change the channel to ITV. They also take time to talk about the Tony Hancock Appreciation Society annual dinner and try very hard to answer questions raised by Podcast listeners on the availability of Hancock’s Half Hour scripts and how the Society’s archives are being managed for future generations. They also get briefly distracted by Tony’s first film Orders are Orders. Don’t forget to rate us and subscribe to the podcast. And if you haven’t done so already, why not join the Tony Hancock Appreciation Society - full details on how to join are at tonyhancock.org.uk
