    I was wondering if anyone can remember a children's tv programme from the 1980s that features a large silver ball from space. I remember lots of little silver balls coming to earth and causing problems.

    Yes, the glitterball. Wow, 1977. Older than I thought. I will have to see if I can find it. Thanks for your help.

    It used to be on youtube, but I can't find it so it may have been removed. I think you can probably buy it on ebay, seem to remember seeing it for sale. My fave part is the bit where the glitterball ate some crisps and a boy says "oi, they cost me 6p!". Also it has a shady character called "filthy potter" and everyone including the local bobby call him that!
