About the Author:

Ray Galton and Alan Simpson met in a sanatorium in Surrey, where they were both being treated for TB. During two years in the same ward, they listened to comedy shows together and also wrote a series of their own. They decided to get a professional opinion of their work and sent a sketch they had written called The Pirate Sketch to the BBC. They were asked to go in for an interview, and soon found themselves writing for the sketch show Happy Go Lucky. Over the next two years they continued to write sketches for a number of big names, before coming up with the idea for Hancock's Half Hour. The show was initially scheduled for radio but later as a television series. A phenomenally successful 10 years later, Galton and Simpson were themselves very well known names. After Hancock's Half Hour they wrote Comedy Playhouse for the BBC, out of which came their second huge television and radio hit, Steptoe & Son. In 1977 they wrote The Galton & Simpson Playhouse, produced by Yorkshire Television for ITV.
