    We actually had a version of this here in Sweden when I was a kid aswell called Albert and Herbert.
    Loved it then and still do!

    Steptoe's living room and the yard outside, were famously packed with junk.

    Most of the episodes I watched as a youngster in the 1960s/early 1970s were on a black & white TV, so it was a real eye-opener when I first saw the program in colour!

    In colour you seem to notice far more objects like carpets, pictures, pots & lamp-shades that were not really so obvious in monochrome, especially on 405 lines.

    I understand that many of the colour episodes (i.e. series 5 & 6) now only survive in good old B&W ...maybe this is another project for Peter Jackson!
