The complete third and fourth series of the classic radio sitcom starring Harry H Corbett and Wilfrid Brambell, adapted from the much-loved TV series.
Steptoe and Son ran for eight series on BBC TV and even spawned two feature films. Such was the series' popularity in the mid-1960s that the cast specially recorded numerous episodes for BBC radio.
Here, collected together for the first time, are all the episodes from the third and fourth radio series, scripted and adapted for radio by Hancock’s Half Hour creators Ray Galton and Alan Simpson. In these hilarious episodes, Harold breaks some sad news to Albert; introduces his fiancée to his father; meets his older half-brother and receives some unexpected news from a visitor. Plus, a group of card sharks fleece Albert; Harold and Albert argue over their lack of money; Harold's wedding day doesn't go quite to plan and Albert is worried about an offer made to Harold.
The episodes included are:
Also included is a selection of trailers prepared for overseas radio broadcast.
Despite the wrong content list, this is series 3 and 4. I already bought the first two series and hesitated to buy this when it was released but it's fine. More classic comedy. Enjoy.
As a 50 something year old man I can honestly say that this is one of the best audio books of Steptoe & Son that is on the market today and would recommend it to everyone even the younger generation because this is amazing comedy at it's very very very best. Posted by . BC FROM EK.OK
