'A flint? That's very nearly an armful!'

This classic line has echoed through the halls of comedy legend since it was first uttered by Anthony Aloysius St John Hancock in The Blood Donor. Now the original soundtrack from that famous episode is collected together with three others from the same series {Hancock's last for BBC TV) featuring a guest cast including Michael Aspel, Patrick Cargill, June Whitfield, Frank Thornton and Hugh Lloyd.

Whilst The Bedsitter finds Hancock alone and loveless in his room for one, The Bowmans sees him joining (not to mention upsetting) the cast of a certain radio soap opera which may sound familiar to fans of The Archers... As The Radio Ham he enters the world of the amateur wireless buff, and in The Blood Donor he dutifully turns up to 'Give It So That Others May Live' - but does the hospital really need quite so much of it?!

A special bonus, featuring an interview with writers Galton and Simpson, is also included.

Have you always loved reading but sometimes find it hard to find the time? Thereís nothing quite like curling up with a good book but many of us canít do that as much as weíd like. We sacrifice this special time because we have so many other things to do each day. Itís a common problem and itís the reason why people on average are not reading as much as they once did. Audio books bring the story to life just as the storytellers of the past did. They allow you to experience the book in a whole new way; in the way the writer felt and heard it in their head. You can feel the emotion when you allow audio books to let the story come to life.
