Galactic Garden, The

CURIOUS CHROMAKEYFEST centring on a couple of tiny aliens – Vektor (ANDREW SACHS) and Plasmid (SARAH NEVILLE) plus their ship’s computer, Chimera – arriving in a suburban back garden and having plenty of BELLAMY’S BACKYARD SAFARI-style encounters with spiders, frogs, and a nuclear family. They float about on a grasshopper-shaped “bug” thing which promptly gets killed off by leaking batteries. BBC Bristol natural history unit provided background animal footage. A bit of a Sachs pet project, all told.

    I remember the ship looked like a cucumber & was vulnerable to fire. It was nearly caught up in a bonfire along with a tortoise.

    It was shown in the hinterland between Christmas 1986 & New Year, unless it was a repeat, but I remember seeing again after that.
