Number 3 Gang - four completely different dustbin men (or how they prefer to be called refuse collectors), who have one thing in common - they devote their time to skiving and scheming to earn some money or at least drive their depot inspector mad.
1969 - 1970
25 minutes per episode
Just like later Porridge, The Dustbinmen used the pseudo-profanity - it would be hardly realistic for the dustbin men not to swear during their work, but at the same time in 1960s no television would broadcast a series that would contain profanity, so the creators came up with made up words that replaced the swearing, f.e. "pigginí or "bog off".
Series was developed by Jack Rosenthal from his ITV Playhouse play called Thereís a Hole in Your Dustbin, Delilah. He turned it into first series, but during the second series he more or less deserted the project to work on his next sitcom, The Lovers.
