OFAH comes 9th in a list of British icons

Only Fools And Horses has been named 9th in a list of top British icons, ahead of The Beatles, Winston Churchill and The Queen.

Shazam TV, 18th January 2016

When Only Fools And Horses began in 1981, it felt inauspicious, like a weak response to Minder, and featuring dubious references to the local "Paki shop". As part of its broadcast of every single episode of OFAH, Gold takes us back to these very early episodes, which show hints of a series that would more than find its feet in the decades to come; plots involve the sale of a job lot of one-legged turkeys and young Rodney harbouring ambitions to work in Hong Kong.
