The world’s funniest rag and bone men star in five of their funniest colour episodes in this selection of the very best of Steptoe and Son.
Men of Letters - Harold jumps at the chance of suppling an article for the parish magazine on the history of the rag and bone trade in Shepherd's Bush. It could be the start of a new career.
A Star is Born - Albert and Harold are both offered parts in the local amateur dramatic society's latest production, but who will upstage whom? Only the opening night will tell.
Oh, What a Beautiful Mourning - The death of Albert's tight-fisted brother, George, means yet another Steptoe funeral and Albert's keen to claim his share of the pickings. But when the squabbling clan race back from the cemetery like vultures to a feast, they find the house has been burgled... or has it?
The Desperate Hours - Albert and Harold have hit hard times: the house is colder than the Russian Front, there's a pile of bills big enough to paper the room with, and all Harold's eaten all day is a carrot he stole from the horse.
Back in Fashion - A fashion photographer wants to use the Steptoe yard. Galmour and luxury against a backdrop of squalor and all those "birds" - could this be Harold's lucky day?
