Only Fools and Horses, a long-running situation comedy series concerning the misadventures of a cockney "wide boy" and his naive younger brother, was first screened by the BBC in 1981 and over the next decade became the most popular and acclaimed sitcom on British television.
Retitled Only Fools and Horses after the time honoured proverb "only fools and horses work," the first series failed to attract much attention, but the quality of the scripts and the excellence of the actors gradually won a huge devoted audience and by the mid-1980s special festive episodes topped the BBC's Christmas ratings.
The leading role of the brash, streetwise "Del Boy" Trotter, decked out with chunky gold jewelry and well versed in cockney rhyming slang, was developed to perfection by David Jason, who deftly realized the character's combination of sentimentality and scheming unscrupulousness.
