    Apparently, there is an old VHS tape out there that still contains the Original instrumental theme tune at the beginning and end credits of EVERY episode of series one (all 7 episodes) and the new theme tune hasn’t been dubbed over it.
    Does anybody know what is that particular video?
    Does anyone have any details regarding this video and could please let me know and maybe even show a photograph or write a description of the front cover.
    Many thanks :)
    Bonjour,
    Roy!

      I don’t know about all of the epsisodes having the original theme tune but I have the original complete collection of the first series on VHS (double cassette with a teal background, not the white background) and this has the original theme tune for the first two episodes. It may have been three but I haven’t watched them for a long time now.

      You can purchase them on eBay now and then.

    Another interesting note – when Del is having a go at Rodney for complaining he’s bored, Rodney runs away, but he runs into Grandad’s room, not the door to his room.

    Yes it is rather strange why this episode, never had the name of the title go up on the screen, when the opening credits started.

    you would think, that how thorough and professional John Sullivan was – that he would have noticed that, and corrected it.

    Although having said that – if some episodes of ‘Christmas crackers’ do have a title – I guess he did indeed correct it.

    Unless i’m mistaken, when Grandad says he is going out in this episode he comes through the front door. It might be a mistake on my part but it just didn’t seem right haha. I love Only Fools and Horses though. Every single night.

      I guess he was in there putting on his coat and shoes, He then goes into the living room to say he’s going out, That’s what i always thought happens anyway :)

    I always wondered why Grandad didn’t go to the old folks do 2 years later in ‘Thicker than Water’. Perhaps he knew Reg was coming back that day?

    Strange That the original episode did not have a title on it as far as I know.
