Ben Miller visits Tony Hancock’s Bournemouth home

Ben Miller’s My Hero on BBC1 this week looked at the life of Tony Hancock.

It was disappointing not to see the Sacred Heart hall or the Avon Social Club in Avon Road where Tony made early appearances.

However, Ben was free to wander around the Hotel Celebrity, once the Durlston Court Hotel run by Tony’s family, and there was old footage of the seafront and trolley buses in Old Christchurch Road.

It is available for viewing on iPlayer until Tuesday 3 September.
