In this most famous of all the Hancock programmes, the country gets a new volunteer blood donor.
Hugh Lloyd remembers Hancock's Half-Hour:
Hugh Lloyd worked on more than 20 episodes of Hancock's Half-Hour including playing a fellow donor in The Blood Donor. He also appeared with Hancock in the film "The Punch and Judy Man".
He remembers: 'The Blood Donor was actually one of the easiest TV shows I ever worked on because I read my lines from an auto-cue on top of a camera. Hancock had just been involved in a slight car accident when we started rehearsals and was still shaken up by it so it was decided that, on this occasion, he should read his lines straight from the cue board. In my scene I had to lie on the bed next to him and look at the same camera so I was able to see my lines, too.
'I owe a lot to Tony and the Half-Hour. Had it not been for the programme I doubt whether I would have been offered the Hugh and I series. And Hancock taught me about what I call the serious side of comedy - that the best humour springs from character and situation and that it's the comedy of human nature that makes us laugh, not the jokes'.

A series of ten programmes 7:Riflemen All
Introduced by Christopher Roads
To realise the full potential of the military rifle, breech-loading instead of muzzle-loading and magazine capacity in place of single shot were required. Many a weird-and-wonderful form of breech-loading was tried and when the choice was made, the British found themselves in the 1870s with a rifle - the Martini-Henry-that could not be properly adapted to magazine-loading. But they fought the First World War with one of the finest rifles ever employed-the SMLE that fooled the Germans into believing they were facing machine guns instead of rifles!
