The Story of Only Fools and Horses

Only Fools and HorsesGold is making a new five-part series The Story of Only Fools and Horses which traces the show’s origins and takes an in-depth behind-the-scenes look at how it developed into Britain’s favourite comedy series.

“Shazam Productions is very happy and excited to be co-producing with North One a new five-part celebration of Only Fools and Horses,” says Jim Sullivan. “With new interviews with cast, crew and fans, and exclusive clips, we hope it will give fresh insight into the making of the series, its impact and legacy.”

Sir David Jason and other members of the team will analyse their favourite sequences, experiences and memories, giving viewers unprecedented access to John Sullivan’s Peckham-based masterpiece.

There will be an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at how certain scenes arose and it will also feature rare and unseen footage from the Trotter archives. The series is expected to be shown on Gold later this year.
