from Very Nearly an Armful - A Tony Hancock Podcast | Published 10/9/2021

Very Nearly an Armful makes a welcome return for a second series.  In this episode Martin, Tim, James and Jon discuss the well known television episode The Missing Page as well as the later re-recording of the same episode which was released on vinyl. The four fans assess the merits of the two versions of this episode, consider whether Hancock’s mime sequence is one of the best moments in all of the television half hours and wax lyrical about the how the quality of the supporting cast is so important to this episode.  The team also get sidetracked into a detailed look at the seamier side of life through the pulp fiction novels of Ben Sarto and Darcy Glinto. They also look at the recent generous archive donation from the estate of the late Alec Bregonzi and briefly attempt to decide which of the team most needs to undertake the body building advertised in ‘Men Are You Skinny’!
