NOTES ON THE PLAYS
WHY DID THE COMEDIAN WEAR A FUNNY JACKET?....1991
Comedian Billy Cormack is young and funny but his audiences don't
seem to realise it. Then one day he finds a jacket in an Oxfam shop.
There's a label in the collar:..it's....Hancock's jacket! A new comedy.
Thirty Minute Theatre, and Roy Hutchins plays Billy. Also stars
Simon Treves, Hetty Baynes, Shaun Prendergast, Elizabeth Kelly,

SPACEHOPPERS, CLACKERS AND REALLY BIG FISH....1993
R4, 6.1.93, 2.02pm, 45m. A wonderful autobiographical evocation of
childhood. It conjures up all those things we thought were forgotten -
school dinners in the sixties, swedes, clackers...("pieces might fly off
and blind you")...narrated by Roy Hutchins, with Jennifer Piercey, Emma Fielding,
Richard Sandall, Kevin Bassant, Alun Jenner, Philip Brown, Clair Hilton,
Rebecca Parker. Assorted pupils played by pupils of the Fleetdown
