Steptoe and Son STEPTOE AND SON

BSG - Home

Programme: Steptoe and Son
Written by: Ray Galton, Alan Simpson
Synopsis: Albert Steptoe and his son Harold run a 'rag and bone' business. Harold wants to move up in the world and leave home, but his plans constantly thwarted by his cunning old and cantankerous father.
BSG Review: Steptoe and Son is a real television classic. The fact that the two lead actors hated each other in real life as well as on screen means you couldn't get a more realistic portrayal of the relationship between the disgusting old widower father and his unmarried son. Great stuff.
Notes: American sitcom " Sandford and Son " was based on this show.
