    "So funny I was crying"

    This is a great listen on the way home from work!! Sound quality is a bit up and down but that is expected from the old radio recordings.

    "sound quality comes and on iPad & Andriod"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Steptoe & Son: The BBC Radio Collection to be better than the print version?

    this could have been a fantastic audiobook

    its only let down has been every so often the sound quality drops well down to poor sound. I'd have understood if the both series were the same, considering the age, though in this day and age I'd have thought this would have been enhanced.

    I've tried this on two different Android phones and an iPad and the same think


    Any additional comments?

    sound quality lets this down at times :(

    Story
    "Characters that speak to the heart are timeless."
    Where does Steptoe & Son: The BBC Radio Collection rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Excellent. One of the best!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Comedic lines that come out of real life characters.


    What does Harry H. Corbett and Wilfred Brambell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Their marvellous execution on emotion & words.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A guilty conscience thwarting the desires of the heart!


    Any additional comments?

    Bafta's, Emmy's and Oscars would be bestowed upon such character driven writing and performances today!

    Story
    "You know what you're getting"
    If you could sum up Steptoe & Son: The BBC Radio Collection in three words, what would they be?

    Classic; Nostalgic; Excellent


    What other book might you compare Steptoe & Son: The BBC Radio Collection to, and why?

    Dad's Army


    Which character – as performed by Harry H. Corbett and Wilfred Brambell – was your favourite?

    The show doesn't work without both of them. So impossible to say


    Any additional comments?

    Really well crafted. Like many of this era, the timing is impeccable. It's the original RADIO series rather than TV adaptation so no issues with visual jokes missed. Great collection and well worth a download
