They do school films so much better in France, it seems.

Following work as a stage manager in the theatre and a senior manager role at the new ITV companies Tyne Tees and Southern, Roger Hancock became an agent who guided the careers of many writers and performers, with a roster that was the envy of his rivals. Highly respected and known for his warmth, congeniality and sense of humour – a "peopleaholic", as Barry Cryer called him – he was also a perfectionist and astute businessman who had great foresight and could be abrasive when he felt it was called for.
