THE DUSTBINMEN: CHRISTMAS SPECIAL (25th November1969)
Christmas in the Refuse Depot "local"....the dustbinmen are celebrating. Not that there is much to celebrate this year. Knocking at doors and wishing compliments of the season in Beowulf Terrace, Gethsemane Street and Falstaff Gardens has yielded no more than: Two bars of scented soap, countless buckets of water, one Jewish diary for the year before last, five razor blades, and a copy of the Salvation Army's War Cry?
But the drama and true meaning of Christmas has a way of catching up on the Dustbinmen when they least expect it.
