Details

Boy, what a welcome home party the devil is waiting to throw for you! Albert Steptoe has always run a junk yard with his son Harold. Now he feels it,s time to retire...but can he stay retired? Who will he give the business to?

Steptoe and Son began in 1962 on the BBC as a one-off single play for Comedy Playhouse in 1962. It became a national institution of comedy and the BBC made seven series. In 1965 the creators Ray Galton and Alan Simpson were approached by Joseph E. Levine to take a pilot for the USA. It was never optioned and a 35mm print was given to Ray Galton as a souvenir. In 1971, Steptoe and Son was eventually re-made for the US market as Sanford and Son. Starring Oscar-nominee Lee Tracy (The Best Man) and Golden Globe-nominee Aldo Ray (From Here to Eternity)

The 35mm print of the original 1965 pilot lay undiscovered in Ray Galton's basement until found by Kaleidoscope during a film shoot.

Special Feature: Footage from the Kaleidoscope documentary The Native Hue of Resolution featuring Ray Galton and Tessa Le Bars.
