First edition.
Episode 14 of the first series of the peerless radio show, in which Hancock decides his future lies in film, and makes his debut in a work shot on Sid James' box camera.
In the first series Moira Lister was the regular female presence; her place was taken in later series by Andree Melly. And although Kenneth Williams was not yet an ever-present cast member, he appears as a guest star here.
A recording of this episode has been preserved in the BBC archives.
An extremely scarce survivor from the early days of a radio classic.
