Once again, Tony Hancock stars as the loveable curmudgeon, in four original television soundtracks written by the character's creators, Ray Galton and Alan Simpson.

In The Economy Drive, Hancock returns home from holiday to find that Sid has left the TV and all the lights on, and failed to cancel the milk and the papers. It's time to make some cutbacks, while The Cold sees Hancock trying to find a cure for a winter cold, but not even his doctor can help. In The Emigrant, Hancock decides he's had enough of England and decides to emigrate - even though none of the colonies seem keen to have him, while The Baby Sitters finds Hancock and Sid employed as baby sitters in a plush, modern house with all the gadgets. But after raiding the host's larder and drinks cabinet the two of them fell asleep. Only when the parents return do they realise there's been a burglary...

Featuring a cast including Sid James, Arthur Mullard and John Le Mesurier, these four episodes show the master of misery at his very best.

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.
