Publisher's Summary

Four classic BBC television episodes starring the world's most famous rag and bone men. Come with us to Shepherd's Bush on a decrepit horse and cart, and view the young-ish Harold Steptoe (bon viveur, man of learning, Casanova) and his beloved father Albert (penny pincher, emotional blackmailer, dirty old man) in their natural habitat of the scrapyard at 24, Oil Drum Lane.

In these salubrious environs of discarded bric-a-brac, dubious antiquities, and downright useless junk, we find our hosts constantly striving for better things like money, sophistication, and perhaps even a woman or two around the place.

These four original BBC TV episodes are: "The Stepmother", "Steptoe A La Cart", "The Bonds That Bind Us", and "My Old Man's A Tory".

    Overall
    "Pure gold!"

    Despite what the celebrity pundits say about this undoubtedly classic sitcom, it was not with out it's low points. Fortunetly the BBC finished this series of re releases on a high note. Having released all of the old radio remakes over 11 volumes, No' 12 contains soundtracks of 4 TV episodes. Whilst some of the jokes were clearly visual and don't translate, all in all this volume is a real gem. Harry H Crobet and Wilfred Bramble deliver hash and aggressive performances here that I found astounding to listen to. Two of the epsiodes have a similair theme (Albert is engaged, Harold is unhappy), something that is explored in at least two other volumes. But overall this is an excellent production that you will come back to again and again and an essential for any fan of comedy writers Galton and Simpson.
