Programme: The Dustbinmen
Filmed:
Episodes: 21 (3 series)
Starring: Graham Haberfield, Bryan Pringle, Trevor Bannister, Bryan Wilde
Written by: Jack Rosenthal, Dave Freeman and more
Synopsis: The misadventures of four dustmen Winston, Cheese & Egg, Eric and Heavy Breathing who had frequent run-ins with their boss, Bloody Delilah. The scriptwriters invented their own abusive language (bog off, piggin 'eck) for this sitcom but were still deluged with complaints.
BSG Review: Very popular at the time (partly because there was a rather topical real-life dustman strike) however looking a little dated now.
