Junkyard find! - Chandy bottles spotted in classic ‘Steptoe and Son’ episode

By Lewis, Aug 5 2017 11:45AM

Well, the curator of the Chandy Museum had seen this episode of Steptoe and Son before, but when he caught a glimpse of it being shown on TV channel Yesterday earlier this week, he was amazed to notice that it includes sight of some Chandy bottles on screen!

The bottles appear on screen in the episode “A Star Is Born”, which is a bit of a classic - it’s the one where Harold joins the local amateur dramatic society only to be dramatically outshone by his father, Albert. Worth a watch if you haven’t seen it and it can be currently found on YouTube here. (We love the ‘string of poloponies’ joke.)

I haven’t hesitated to update the “Chandy on screen” page here with details of this new sighting.

Of course, if you ever spot any other Chandy items on film or TV, we’d love to hear from you.
