Steptoe And Son, The Early Years, 1962 – 1965

For years I’ve ranted and raved at the lack of repeats of classic black and white shows on TV.  Finally we have a classic back on TV.  Steptoe and Son.  What’s more it’s free to view thanks to being screened on UKTV drama.

As many will know Steptoe and son originated from the successful Galton and Simpson’s Comedy Playhouse and was shown in two blocks 1962 – 1965, and 1970 – 1974.  Whilst the 1970’s colour episodes now enjoy regular repeats on UKTV GOLD the earlier episodes have, until now, largely been forgotten.

The question now is: will see the return of other classics such as: Hancock’s Half Hour or The Likely Lads?
