Sorry Dolly if I spoke out of place, didn’t expect you so soon!
You’re right of course, the answer was Upstairs Downstairs Upstairs Downstairs 8).

Was it £650 that Harold was offered by the antique dealer?
Though I might be remembering the amount from the Yank version.
The first episode of Sanford and Son in 1971 was an adaption of Crossed Swords.

Edit: I’ve got the answer now but had to watch the episode, maybe somebody else will know it :).
Wow was 650 quid far off, I forgot it was old money too.

Truly, greed is blind, and stone deaf. But despite Harold’s frantic naivete at the auction, I’ve always interpreted his mad behavior as more of an expression of desperation, rather than actual greed. It's a theory :).

New question then.....
Which wedding gift was first to be thrown out the window? :shock:.

Och, right you are, I should've been clearer.
I was referring to the television series, not a dung covered ring.
Nobby's your Uncle :o.

Steam iron actually, though without electricity I dunno how it would work.
Unless it were coal fueled or something.

The insurance rep was called Mr. Russell, as brilliantly played by Steptoe regular, Frank Thornton :).
