Steptoe and Son
British sitcom featuring father and son rag-and-bone men

Steptoe and Son was a British sitcom written by Ray Galton and Alan Simpson about a father-and-son rag-and-bone business. They live on Oil Drum Lane, a fictional street in Shepherd's Bush, London. Four series were broadcast by the BBC TV from 1962 to 1965, followed by a second run from 1970 to 1974.

It was remade in the US as Sanford and Son, in Sweden as Albert & Herbert and in the Netherlands as Stiefbeen en zoon.

The series focused on the inter-generational conflict of father and son. Albert Steptoe, a "dirty old man", is an old rag-and-bone man, set in his grimy and grasping ways. By contrast his 37-year-old son Harold is filled with social aspirations, not to say pretensions. The show contained elements of drama and tragedy, as Harold was continually prevented from achieving his ambitions.

All 52 episodes were later remade for BBC radio, often using the same cast. These were broadcast initially on the Light Programme in 1966-67 and later Radio 2 from 1971 to 1976.
