Chockablock

THE BEEB WERE scraping below the bottom of the barrel here, but what they found wasn’t that bad given it involved SIR FRED HARRIS. Either Chockabloke (Fred) or Chockagirl (CAROL LEADER) “checked in” via minuscule buggy to a sort of Fisher-Price Cray mainframe, which they then had to teach simple nursery-rhymes and songs by method of painful repetition. Nice Vocodery singalong theme tune, though.

    I would (literally) give my left arm for a nice copy of Chockablock on DVD. Can dload the crap version from YouTube but would love a better quality copy.

    Right I’m off to find my vocoder.
