Publisher's Summary

Series five & six of the BBC radio sitcom starring Harry H Corbett and Wilfrid Brambell, adapted from the much-loved TV series.

Steptoe and Son ran for eight series on BBC TV and even spawned two feature films. Such was the series' popularity in the mid-1960s that the cast specially recorded several episodes for BBC radio. Here, collected together for the first time, are all episodes from the fifth and sixth radio series, scripted by Hancock's Half Hour creators Ray Galton and Alan Simpson.

The episodes included are 'The Desperate Hours'; 'Come Dancing'; 'A Star is Born'; 'A Winter's Tale'; 'Men of Property'; 'Men of Letters'; 'Loathe Story'; 'Oh, What a Beautiful Mourning'; 'Live Now, PAYE Later'; 'Upstairs, Downstairs, Upstairs, Downtairs'; 'And So To Bed; Porn Yesterday'; 'The Seven Steptoerai'; 'Seance in a Wet Rag' and 'Bone Yard'; and a special Christmas edition first broadcast as part of David Jacobs' Crackers in 1976.

Steptoe and Son.

Firstly I would like to thank Galton and Simpson with out whom 50s 60s and 70s Britain would not have been as blessed as they have been with superb comedy. in Hancock and Steptoe & Son. Sticking with Steptoe and Son Wilfred Bramble and Harry H Corbett play the Father and Son rag and bone men duo to perfection. Series 5 and 6 show them at their peak and this Audio collection is top class. sit back get comfy and enjoy British Comedy at its best . 😂

Excellent as always had me 😂😆😂

This exceptionally funny father n son duo, the poor rag n bone men, are at their very best in this 5/6 series - has you laughing from beginning to end!
This is British comedy at its very best, like they say, they just don’t write stuff like this anymore!
(Prob because 1/4 of it wouldn’t be allowed 😮😜)
If you liked to watch them on tv then you won’t be disappointed in this audiobook - u can just close your eyes and imagine, it takes you right back.
Well worth it IF you love a good laugh

Just be aware, some comments/saying MAY offend some ppl, but remember it was filmed back in the 60’s!
