Hancock's Half Hour (S03E12) Hancock's 43 Minutes (RESTORED)

Hancock's Half Hour (S03E12) Hancock's Forty-Three Minutes - The East Cheam Repertory Company (BBC) 2014 RESTORED - VidFIRE(D) (7800kbps CBR AC3)

This episode ended up on the Anniversary DVD box-set completely unrestored! So, I've not only VidFIRE(D) it, I've also cleaned it up!


A complete departure from the usual show. Hancock presents his own variety show from the Television Theatre, but he has asked Sid to provide all the acts!

Main cast:
Tony Hancock, Sid James, John Gregson, Max Geldray, Alf Silvestri, The Glamazons and The Keynotes.

Download Hancock's Half Hour (S03E12) Hancock's Forty-Three Minutes - The East Cheam Repertory Company from here:

Part 1.
Part 2.

Please note: WinRAR will be needed, as the HHH episode is in an archived file - in which, there's a VIDEO_TS folder, that you can burn off to a DVD (or just playback using VLC media player - see below for more details on that, and where to get it, if you don't already have it). In the meantime, should you need it, you can download WinRAR from here:

This, as-per-usual, for my files/uploads, needs to be watched back on something that'll display interlaced video, or one of the main reasons for the restoration (the VidFIRE), will be lost.

See below, for more details on what you need to do...:


If you're not going to watch this back on a proper CRT TV (remember those...), then use the following media player and settings:

VLC media player is an ideal candidate, if you plan to watch this back on an LCD or LED flat screen computer monitor.

Available here for Windows:

Or here for Mac OS X:

Once installed, and the video is playing back, hit Pause, then go up to the Menu > Video and change the following two default settings:

1. Video > Deinterlace > On
2. Video > Deinterlace mode > Linear or Yadif (2x)

Once those are set, then hit Play...

Enjoy... :wink:
