Little Big Time

Little Big Time was a very strange programme which starred Freddy and the Dreamers. I really can't remember much more other than a large man who dressed in a banana costume (Stupid 'nana). He also played a policeman with a blue light on his helmet. There was also the cape-wearing, moustache-twirling villain Sir Jasper. I think the audience sat in stalls surrounding the central stage.

    I watched this in Oz. I always remember the robotic Hungry Drains were endeavouring to capture and 'pickle' Oliver the Clock.

    Bless you, bless you all -- for DECADES I've been trying to remember where on earth my childhood fear of 'hungry drains' ("we are hungry drains, hungry drains, hungry drains"?) came from. I was 4, and somehow got it mixed up in my mind that they had something to do with Dr Who, but I could never find any 'hungry drains' on any Dr Who re-runs, so I'd convinced myself that I'd dreamed the whole thing up!Moved to the US as a kid, so of course none of my chums had any idea what I was on about. I'd love to find video.

    I was about 11 years old when I remember going to the studio to be in the audience. We had to chant, "I want to go to the Overworld" with our eyes shut again and again. I don't remember much more than this but it was a friends birthday treat that was far more memorable than a party. ( I am now 48)

    Little Big Time starred Freddie Garrity and Pete Birrell (from Freddie and the Dreamers) my uncle Pete. I was in the studio for one programme(I think I was about 9) I still have the Oliver in the Overworld Album - Top kids story with the Undercog, spoke in the wheel etc., It should be updated and put on tv, kids would love it

    There was a serial called Oliver in the Overworld. It featured the evil Hungry Drains. Would love to see some old footage of it as I can barely remember the series
