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. Written by

Did You Know?
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
