Storyline

With the lease on their house about to run out Steptoe and Son visit their local bank manager to arrange a loan and over-draft facilities. He is quite agreeable but insists they wine and dine him and his wife at an expensive local restaurant. Harold gets ever so slightly overdrawn as a result of buying the food but unfortunately Albert's usual lucky touch deserts him at the gaming tables when he tries to recoup the rest.

Trivia

FOUR episodes of the classic television comedy Steptoe And Son, which the BBC had thought lost for more than 20 years, turned up in the cellar of Ray Galton, one of the show's writers in 1993. This being one of the lost episodes. The four black and white episodes of the Galton and Simpson comedy were shown just once in 1970, then they disappeared. The reel-to-reel tapes were found by a BBC researcher and transferred to newer technology and transmitted on BBC 2 as part of the BBC's new year season. See more »

Harold is not having much luck when he plays Monopoly with his father. Albert has all the luck while Harold has to mortgage some of his properties and sell some of his houses.

However the postman delivers an ominous letter, the lease on their house is about to run out and they need to find £750 to purchase the freehold or they are risk of being homeless.

Having heard tales of a pal Charlie Miller who always manages to get a loan from a local bank manager to, Harold decides to use the same tactics. This involves wining and dining the bank manager and his wife at a posh restaurant. The trouble is Albert decides to try his luck at the gaming tables.

It is fun to see Harold acting all posh and grimacing as the bank manager and his wife scoff their faces while he makes do with scrambled eggs in order to save money at the restaurant.
