Classic TV Moments: Only Fools And Horses – The Chandelier



Apparently based on an actual event experienced by Only Fools and Horses creator John Sullivan, Del and Rodney convinced the owners of a stately home that they could clean their chandeliers. unfastening it from the floor above, Del and Rodders waited on ladders to catch it in a blanket.

Except Grandad (Lennard Pearce) had unscrewed the wrong one which crashed to the ground. so much of what the actors achieved in this series was the result of superb facial expressions. They were never better than in this.

Episode: A Touch of Glass, 2 December 1982, season 2 finale.
