an excellent, revealing & thoroughly engrossing documentary.

STEPTOE & SON is regarded as one of the greatest UK TV comedy sitcoms ever & this interesting, frank & highly watchable channel 4 programme certainly covers familiar ground albeit with a biting edge. the clips from the series make it worth watching alone & certain aspects IE homosexuality, infidelity & the shows humble beginning does indeed make great copy. wilfred brambell & harry h. corbett's personnal lives are looked into with terrific insight & the duos much publicised loathing of each other is also well documented. complete with insightful interviews by STEPTOE scriptwriters ray galton & alan simpson; one could hardly expect a better TV biographical treatment. sadly, this superb programme is to date unavailable on DVD & i luckily managed to obtain a private promo copy from it's makers: fulmar television & film limited. my only complaint is that i wish it were longer!
