Some more of the missing Hancocks Half Hour's have been recorded earlier this week and they are also coming to the Edinburgh On 5th August 2015. For anyone wondering about the connection to the Carrys Ons; the show, from the sixties, starred the man himself Tony Hancock, but also dipped in to the Carry On world with Sid James, Kenneth Williams and Hattie Jacques.

A look at The Interviews with Kenneth Williams (still available on catchup).
Gold might be known for showing reruns of Only Fools and Horses, but it does occasionally commission its own stuff. The Interviews proved to be a gentle, old-fashioned show, enjoyable thanks to its subject, but one that may not attract much of an audience beyond the channel's devotees.

Story
Tagline
A celebration of the most successful comedies of all time.
Introduction
Since they were created in 1958 they have been the main stay of British Comedy for years. They have touched many generations, bringing joy and laughter to young and old alike. Weather your favourite was Kenneth Williams, Sid James, Hattie Jacques or Barbara Windsor, they never failed to raise a smile.

The What a Carry On website started in 1995 as a labour of love for the British Carry On comedy films from the (mainly) 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. These films had stars like Kenneth Williams, Sid James, Kenneth Connor, Barbara Windsor, Hattie Jacques, Charles Hawtrey, Jim Dale and many other great actors/comedians. They are very British in nature, and the humour a product of it’s time, but they are fundamentally very, very funny.

They were normally critically panned upon release, but the public loved them and went to see them in droves, and at the height of their popularity they were releasing 1 a year - quite a feat.  The main driving force behind them was producer Peter Rogers and director Gerald Thomas. The two main writer’s were Norman Hudis in the earlier one’s and Talbot Rothwell.
