O.T.T. ("Over The Top") was a late-night adult version of the anarchic ATV children's show Tiswas (This Is Saturday Wear A Smile), which was made by its ITV franchise successor Central Independent Television.

It was broadcast at 11.00pm on Saturday nights for one series in 1982.

O.T.T. was created and presented by Chris Tarrant, and also starred ex-Tiswasians John Gorman, Lenny Henry and Bob Carolgees.

Helen Atkinson-Wood was the female sidekick replacement for Sally James, who stayed behind to present the concurrent and final series of Tiswas alone.

The stars of ATV's anarchic Saturday morning kids show "Tiswas" reunite for a one-off special.

The show was heavily cut for ITV broadcast, not for censorship reasons but for timing. A much more fuller version of the show can be seen on the official DVD, which features a new intro, Paul Hardin, Chris Tarrant's comedy vicar routine, animal clips, the full rant from John Gorman's 'Albert Grumble' character, a Frank Carson joke, various 'Tiswas' clips and a thank-you speech to the audience from Chris Tarrant.
