Fifty years after it was first broadcast, Paul Jackson considers the legacy of Steptoe & Son, in the company of the show's writers - Ray Galton and Alan Simpson - and those who have been influenced by it.

The creators of Red Dwarf, Birds Of A Feather, Our Friends In The North, The New Statesman and George Gently join them to reveal how much they were entertained and influenced by Albert and 'Arold - and their familial squabbles that continued over 57 episodes, eight series and 13 years.
