Albert and Harold; father and son, rag-and-bone. The father proclaims he’s “a poor old man” while the son protests that his dad is “a dirty old man!” In actual fact, both are telling the truth.

These two, warring rag-and-bone-men, in their Shepherd’s Bush scrapyard home, became household favourites for entire generations throughout the ’60s and ’70s and still they continue to entertain audiences today.

Marking sixty years since the first ever broadcast, Hambledon Productions (Just Like That! The Tommy Cooper Show and Steptoe and Son Radio Show – Christmas Edition) and Apollo Theatre Company (Round the Horne and Hancock’s Half Hour) breathe life back into the Steptoe household with this fresh and hilarious adaptation of three, original episodes from the long-running smash hit BBC sitcom, faithfully recreating a live radio recording and reliving some of the Steptoe’s finest misadventures.

Adapted by John Hewer; based on the original scripts by Ray Galton and Alan Simpson.
