About The Story of Only Fools and Horses

The Story Of Only Fools And Horses

Over six episodes we take an in-depth look at what surely has to be the most popular UK sitcom of all time. With access to cast and crew, archive footage both seen and unseen, and some of the biggest Only Fools experts around, we build the most complete picture yet of John Sullivan's landmark show.

What happened when the team got out of the studio and filmed on location in Monaco, Margate and Miami? How did John Sullivan write and record the theme tunes? What exactly went into Del's exotic drinks?

Behind-the-scenes secrets are revealed as the Only Fools story unfolds and we also dig up rare treats, never been shown on TV before, including a sketch where Del, Rodney and Uncle Albert send a message to British troops abroad, a very revealing rehearsal tape and foreign remakes of the show which include Dutch, Portuguese and Slovenian versions of Del and Rodney's most famous scenes.

As well as Sir David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst there are contributions from the cast including John Challis, Sue Holderness, Tessa Peake-Jones, Gwyneth Strong and Patrick Murray, as well as insights from the show's biggest fans, such as Jonathan Ross and Danny Baker.

So sit back and enjoy the full story of how the ambitious Trotters went from knocking out dodgy deals on the markets stalls of Peckham to taking over the world.
