Between 1957 and 1960, forty-one episodes of the iconic BBC comedy series Hancock’s Half Hour were either transmitted live from or recorded at Riverside Studios. This triple-bill of Riverside-recorded episodes sees ‘Anthony Aloysius St John Hancock’ perform jury service, borrow a damaged library book and attempt to swindle the National Trust.
Twelve Angry Men (1959, 30 mins)
Lord Byron Lived Here (1959, 30 mins)
The Missing Page (1960, 30 mins)
