This episode of the ground breaking series plots Fred’s rise from humble window cleaner to steeplejack and goes on to explain how an unfortunate accident when a train was late leaving a station caused him to despise everything Creweish. It explores how an embarrassment behind the outside toilets of the Ferret and Fiddle at the hands of Doris the barmaid twisted his mind against all long, tall, circular structures which belched smoke at irregular intervals and relates how a chance meeting with Heinrich Himmler at a Nuremberg steam rally resulted in him joining the Nazi Party. On his return to Lancashire Fred founded the Black Caps, a paramilitary organisation dedicated to sabotaging roofs and guttering. During his lifetime, it is estimated, he toppled more chimneys than the Luftwaffe, in the Rossendale Valley and he became the most feared Bolton lad ever to appear on television.
