The complete fifth series of the legendary BBC Radio comedy series starring Tony Hancock. Created by Ray Galton and Alan Simpson in 1954, Hancock's Half Hour was the radio vehicle that made Tony Hancock a household name. Each week listeners would be admitted to the sometimes fantastical, sometimes mundane life of 'the lad 'imself'. Aided and abetted by Sid James, Bill Kerr, Kenneth Williams and Hattie Jacques, Hancock would enter into the spirit of each episode with characteristic dolefulness. This volume contains all 20 episodes from the fifth radio series, collected together for the first time. In these hilarious Half Hours, Hancock has a makeover; turns his home into a private school; stands in the East Cheam by-election; presents three short plays from the East Cheam Repertory Company; takes in a wrestling match with Miss Pugh; and gets more than he bargains for when he wins a TV quiz show. The episodes are: 'The New Radio Series'; 'The Scandal Magazine'; 'The Male Suffragettes'; 'The Insurance Policy'; 'The Publicity Photograph'; 'The Unexploded Bomb'; 'Hancock's School'; 'Around the World in 80 Days'; 'The Americans Hit Town'; 'The Election Candidate'; 'Hancock's Car'; 'The East Cheam Drama Festival'; 'The Foreign Legion'; 'Sunday Afternoon at Home'; 'The Grappling Game'; 'The Junk Man'; 'Hancock's War'; 'The Prize Money'; 'The Threatening Letters'; and 'The Sleepless Night'. This new set includes improved audio quality and extended edits for five episodes plus a previously unreleased mini episode recorded to coincide with the 1958 Commonwealth Games. Duration: 10 hours approx. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sid James, Tony Hancock. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rhuk/002333/bk_rhuk_002333_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
In the 1970s, Dolly Freed lived off the land dirt cheap and plum easy. Living in their own house on a half-acre lot outside of Philadelphia for almost five years, Dolly and her father produced their own food and drink and spent roughly $700 each per year. Thirty years later, Dolly Freed's Possum Living is as fascinating and pertinent as it was in 1978. Tin House is reissuing the survivalist classic with a foreword by David Gates and an afterword by the author.After discussing reasons why you should or shouldn't give up your job, Possum Living gives you details about the cheapest ways with the best results to buy and maintain your home, dress well, cope with the law, stay healthy, and keep up a middle-class facade whether you live in the city, in the suburbs, or in a small town. In a delightful, straightforward style, Dolly Freed explains how to be lazy, proud, miserly, and honest, live well and enjoy leisure. She shares her knowledge for what you do need - your own home, for example - and what you don't need, such as doctors, lawyers, and insurance. Through her own example, Dolly hopes to inspire you to do some independent thinking about how economics affect the course of your life now and may do so in the coming "age of shortages". If you ever wondered what it would be like to be in greater control of your own life, Possum Living will show you and help you do it for yourself. 1. Language: English.
