 CLASSIC BRITISH SITCOM,SET IN PECKHAM,SOUTH LONDON.IT CENTRES AROUND THE TROTTER FAMILY,LIVING IN A TOWER BLOCK CALLED NELSON MANDELA HOUSE.
THE THREE MAIN CHARACTERS ARE DEREK 'DEL BOY' TROTTER,RODNEY TROTTER(DEL'S YOUNGER BROTHER),AND THEIR GRANDAD.DEL AND RODNEY'S FATHER DID A RUNNER YEARS AGO AND LEFT THE BOYS WITH THEIR MOTHER,UNTIL SHE SNUFFED IT.
GRANDAD ONLY APPEARED IN THE FIRST THREE SEASONS,DUE TO THE DEATH OF ACTOR LENNARD PEARCE DURING FILMING FOR THE FIRST EPISODE OF SEASON 4,AND THIS WAS WRITTEN INTO THE SERIES WHEN WE SAW GRANDAD'S FUNERAL IN THE EPISODE'STRAINED RELATIONS'
IN THE SAME EPISODE,THE BOYS WERE LUMBERED WITH THEIR UNCLE ALBERT,WHO CAME TO THE FUNERAL FROM THE NORTH LONDON SIDE OF THE TROTTER FAMILY,AND EVER SINCE HAS BORED EVERYONE TO DEATH WITH HIS TALES OF HIS LIFE IN THE NAVY...''DURING THE WAR......''
BASICALLY,THEY ARE ALWAYS SHORT OF CASH,SO THEY WHEEL AND DEAL IN ANYTHING THEY THINK WILL MAKE MONEY.USUALLY THEIR IDEAS DON'T WORK OUT AS THEY PLANNED,AND END IN SOME KIND OF HILARIOUS DISASTER.
EACH TIME DEL CAME UP WITH A NEW MONEY MAKING PLAN,HE WOULD THINK THAT IT WOULD MAKE HIM RICH--''THIS TIME NEXT YEAR WE'LL BE MILLIONAIRES''
DEL TRIES TO SELL ALL OF HIS CHEAP JUNK AT THE LOCAL MARKET,WHILE RODNEY KEEPS AN EYE OUT IN CASE THE PLODS COME ALONG.
RODNEY CAN BE THE BRAINS OF THE FAMILY(HE HAS GCE'S IN MATHS AND ART)BUT MOSTLY IS A BIT OF A DIM WIT,AND DEL ENDS UP CALLING HIM A PLONKER.
A TOTAL OF 61 EPISODES WERE MADE STARTING IN 1981 TO CHRISTMAS 1996(IN WHICH WE FINALLY SEE THE TROTTERS GET THEIR FORTUNE,WHEN THEY FIND AN OLD LONG LOST WATCH,AND IT SELLS AT AUCTION FOR OVER 6 MILLION BEER VOUCHERS)
