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.

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.

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!!!!
