Does Magna Carta mean nothing to you?

Tony Hancock and Magna Carta

Did she die in vain?

…brave Hungarian peasant girl, she forced King John to sign the pledge at Runnymede and close the boozers at half past ten. Is all this to be forgotten?

And I was so looking forward to recreating that classic speech by Tony Hancock from the BBC’s “Hancock’s Half Hour” version of “12 Angry Men”.

The radio show may be over 50 years but it’s one of the few things I actually bother to record on the BBC, over all their output of what 7 TV channels knocking on a dozen radio channels, one half hour show made years before I was born. That and “Shaun The Sheep” of course.
