Harold and his elderly father, Albert, work as rag and bone men in London. The pair live in squalor and the father has some disgusting personal habits which continue to embarrass the son, who continues to try to better himself.
Steptoe and Son is classic British comedy at its very best. Harry H.Corbett and Wilfrid Brambell are perfect as the son and father.
As with most TV series some episodes are better than others.
