The Lad Himself
Tony Hancock was born in Birmingham in 1924 but moved to Bournemouth when he was about three years of age.
Hancock appeared in six series of Hancock’s Half Hour on BBC Radio between 1954 and 1959.
The Lad Himself
Perhaps Hancock’s best known work is ‘The Blood Donor’
from June 1961.
He had been in a car crash a week before the recording but insisted that the show ‘must go on’ so read all his lines from cue cards.
He took his own life in Australia in June 1968. These are some of his catchphrases:
“A pint? That’s very nearly an armful!”
“Dear, oh dear!”
“What a life!”
IF you press enter it will automatically give you a new Block Paragraph. If you put your cursor at the end of the above sentence you will notice a line come up in a box with options. So highlight a word and click on B to embolden. Click on the paragraph icon to change that line to a heading. Choose from H1, H2 H3 etc. I have coded them all. You can centre tact in that Block or you can select the three dots to give you options such as insert block after or before. You can also get into the html code. Not recommended for novices (or nuns) but it means I can code stuff that doesn’t show in the text. Ignore the boxes below with Meta Description etc. That is for me to complete.
When you have finished editing a page click the blue Update item at the top right hand corner otherwise your work will be lost as soon as you go to another page. To go to another page click the big W to the top left.
So this page is for you to play around with. I have deliberately coded it not to be picked up by search engines and as it is not in the menu no one will find it unless they know the full URL (address).
