Four classic BBC radio 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.
In these four episodes, Harold is convinced that Albert has a secret cache of food when bailiffs surrounds the Steptoe establishment, Harold is left alone with a houseful of creepy coffins, the pair endure an evening at the cinema, and chaos ensues with the removal of a piano from a sixth floor flat.
