"It was never a good idea to go and see Hancock in his dressing-room before transmission. During rehearsals he would be fine; and then there would be an hour's break, and it would be best to keep away: He'd be very, very nervous; he'd be so tense that your presence would be unwelcome." (Ray Galton)

George - The Big Decision
Although he is male, George Roberts ' natural urge is to function as a female. His condition is defined as transexual. When shown last year this documentary followed George's sex-change attempt: now this week we discover what eventually happened.
Early in 1979 George put into effect a decision that had been maturing in his mind since he was a teenager - to become a woman in the fullest sense possible. It is a decision for which George will pay dearly - socially, financially and physically, as electrolysis and massive doses of hormones transform his body.
Meanwhile, in the first stage of his journey across the sexes, George attempts to become a National Health patient and ' comes out' fully by giving his clothing to charity and taking the name Julia.
