Klaus, only Fools and Horses is a 'classic' British comedy about a family who are going to be millionaires but their trading schemes never quite come off...  it's been running for some years, but lately it's just Christmas specials. Great programme.

Andrew, I can't say I've ever heard TV refer to it and there's no 'lovely jobley' / 'who dares wins' / 'you plonker'  type quotes in any of his songs that I remember even in one million pounds where it could be relevant...

Thanks for clearing that, Alan! I thought it was a comedy, but didn't really know about it.

I always remember this as being one of the strangest posts on the forum. We never did find out the answer, and now it is too late for one interested person.

Poor old John - even if he did go off the boil in his later stuff.

I used to love Citizen Smith. "Power to the people!"

Me too - but a lot of the politics went over my head at the time as I was only 13 when it started. Great slapstick and funny lines too though.

Tribute to John Sullivan on BBC 1 tonight at 830pm.  So should be clips of OFAH, CS & Just Good Friends.

Went to a book signing 18 months ago of Robert Lindsay (Woolfie).  Got the book signed "Freedom For Whitstable".. he posed for a photo and stood with clenched fist.. "Power to the People!!!!

He's always been one of my favourite actors - but why did he do that "My Family" crap?

An income I suppose. A lot of British actors have to get work wherever they can.

Yeah. Shame that, as he's done some good stuff over the years.

He was brilliant in 'GBH' as that Derek Hatton-type politician, especially the way his hand kept flying to the back of his head everytime he was asked an awkward question, like he had an odd form of St. Vitus Dance or a nervous tic or something.

'My Family' is truly awful.

To me, this was always the great unanswered TV Smith question and it's high time that the people knew the truth!

Tim - do you like "Only Fools and Horses"?

Is it the only thing to look forward to at Xmas Bloody Xmas?

PLEASE put us out of our misery!









Of course, I'm more of a Monty Python man myself - did you guess?
