    Classic TV theme “Old Ned” by Ron Grainer, not specifically composed for Steptoe and Son. Grainer was approached to write the theme music but already had this as a piece of library music. First released on Pye 45 7N 15411 c/w “Happy Joe” the theme music to Comedy Playhouse where Steptoe and Son first appeared in 1962.

    What? So Britain has the monopoly on sexy blond haired women now? That will come as news to the Swedes. And how is Britney Spears in any way a copy of Billie Piper? If anything, Billy Piper is a copy of Fergie from Black Eyed Peas. Oh, and I also suppose that Law & Order UK is original, eh?

    Redd was born John Elroy Sanford, in 1922. He ran away from home to join a street band, when he was 13. He went to New York after that, to get in to show business – and supported himself by washing dishes, while carving himself a place in the biz. He got his nickname from his hair color, and light skinnedness.
    He really hit the big time in 1972, when he was cast in the American version of the successful British sitcom, Steptoe and Son, renamed for the USA, Sanford and Son, after his birthname

    I don’t understand why the yanks always have to copy us brits. We do it all first then they come along copy us and everyone thinks they are original. Diana Dors so then they had Marilyn Monroe. Steptoe and Son and then they made Sanford and Son. The Beatles and then they had The Monkey’s. Billie Piper then they came up with Britney Spears. The Office so they made The Office US. Oh and another thing America hasn’t come up with a great comedy since the 1960′s IMO.
