Fresh from The Young Ones, Christopher Ryan put Mike behind him and took the lead in a television show that was satirical it went over the the majority of the audiences heads!
Written by Tony Millan and Mike Walling, A Small Problem was originally broadcast on BBC2 in 1987 and tackled prejudice head on with a form of apartheid based on people’s height being introduced to Great Britain as law – it was declared that anyone below 5ft tall was forced to live in tower-block ghettos south of the River Thames.
The theme tune was written by Mo Foster and Mike Walling.
As mentioned, many viewers appeared not to understand the satirical aspect of the show, and the BBC was flooded with complaints and it finished after six episodes.
