    Tony Hancock, Sid James, Bill Kerr and Warren Mitchell star in two classic episodes written by Ray Galton and Alan Simpson, which showcase the master of misery at his best. The Poetry Society: An evening with a group of Hancock's new avant-garde friends produces gems of abstract poetry, not only from the group but also from Sid and Bill. Sid's Mystery Tours: Sid talks Hancock into becoming the director of his guided tours company - but it doesn't even possess a coach.

    Tony Hancock's premature death in 1968 at the age of 44 deprived the entertainment world of perhaps the greatest post-war comedian to have emerged from this country. It makes his 80 hours of material originally broadcast by the BBC on radio and television between 1954 and 1961 seem all the more priceless and rare. With his impeccable timing and brilliantly subtle shifts in intonation, he could create sound picture that bore the unmistakable hallmark of a genius.

    The Conjurer sees Hancock taking up magic, and hired by Sid to put on a show at Dartmoor Prison. Little does he know that it's only a front for an escape plan. In Cyrano de Hancock, Sid is besotted with Miss Pugh, and asks for Hancock's helpin expressing his love, while The Diary finds Hancock looking back at 1956, and falling into a reverie where he imagines himself as a surgeon, a lion tamer, and a test pilot.
