Seedy Sitcoms: Steptoe and Rising Damp

In the latest episode of the podcast celebrating growing up in the 70’s in Britain and the huge part TV played in our childhoods, we are looking at the seedy side of life. From litter in the streets, dog mess under foot and body odour we remember how dirty life could be back then. We also remember two classic sitcoms which dwelt on the seedy side of life.

Steptoe and Son brought us the strained relationship between Harold Steptoe, a would be free thinker and intellectual and his father Albert, an old fashioned rag n’ bone man desperate to keep his son close to him. We’re also remembering Rising Damp, a sitcom involving a group of people whose lives hadn’t quite turned out the way they had hoped.
