Theres comedy among the dustbins with this classic, top-rated series from the late 60s/early 70s. Created by celebrated writer Jack Rosenthal (THE EVACUEES), the series revolves around four misfits and their affectionately-named dustbin van Thunderbird 3. Rosenthal would go on to write the highly-successful comedy series THE LOVERS and create one of ITVs most watched programmes LONDONS BURNING. THE DUSTBINMENs working-class humour outraged Mary Whitehouse at the time it was broadcast and it could probably be rightly described as a less-adult and more amusing precursor to the early-90s hit series COMMON AS MUCK. Included in this set are all remaining episodes (two episodes are missing from the final series), the pilot play and the Christmas Special sketch.

This special will appeal to anyone who likes Jack Rosenthals work, 60/70s sit-coms and archive television fans.

i think it was bacon 'n' egg

Googled it.... They were the bowler-hatted Heavy Breathing (nicknamed because he believed he was God's gift to women), Smellie (because he stank), Winston (the driver -an ardent Manchester City fan) and the dim witted Coronation Street * fan, Eric.
