Steptoe and Son

Steptoe and Son-1960s The show followed the exploits of two aging 'rag and bone' men - junk dealers who sparr and bicker amid the detritus of their livesAspirational Harold has pretensions of sensitivity and sees himself as a man of culture, only tragically thwarted by his circumstances and the burden of his irascible father. The wiley Steptoe, who is several degrees sharper than his son, is a canny old sod and somehow always manages to get the better of the hapless Harold.
