In 1960 16-year old schoolboy Derek 'Del Boy' Trotter is living in Peckham with his grandparents, his idle father Reg and his hard-working mother Joan, who is employed as an usherette at the local picture house and frequently has to rebuff the advances of the amorous manager. Del has a penchant for wheeling and dealing but Joan is dissatisfied with her useless spouse and tentatively embarks upon an affair with Freddie ' the Frog' Robdal, a cultured art lover - who also happens to be a notorious burglar recently released from prison.

The scene where Joan and Reenie are travelling on the Tube to the pregnancy testing clinic was filmed on the disused Aldwych Branch of the Piccadilly Line in central London. This branch, which closed to the public in 1994, is often used by television and film companies when scenes set on the London Underground are required. In this instance, the platforms at Aldwych station were made to look like a Borough station on the Northern Line. See more
The sign outside the Ritz cinema advertises "Come Dance With Me staring Bridget Bardot". Bardot's name should be spelled Brigitte Bardot
and "staring" should be "starring". See more
