ITV Series 2 Jack Hylton Presents The Tony Hancock Show

The second series for ITV was also entitled 'Jack Hylton Presents The Tony Hancock Show'.  Broadcast between November 1956 and January 1957 at fortnightly intervals, the show was written by Eric Sykes (episodes 1 - 4) and Ray Galton & Alan Simpson (episodes 5 - 6 although they were uncredited).  None of the shows have survived and little information exists about the cast details.  The first four episodes had titles but the last 2 were untitled and only brief details of sketch names are known.
