Ben Miller on Tony Hancock

My Hero Episode 3 of 3

Ben Miller explores the extraordinary career of his comic hero, Tony Hancock. Charting Hancock's rise from amateur comedian in Bournemouth to stardom in radio, television and film, Ben discovers a restless perfectionist whose comic gifts were matched only by his talent for self-destruction. Featuring classic clips from Hancock's Half Hour, interviews with collaborators and friends, rare photographs and archive, and Ben's own personal favourite Hancock moments, the film is a tribute to one of Britain's best-loved stars.
