Oscillation of a Cylinder on a Cylindrical Surface

A small uniform cylinder of radius R rolls without slipping along the inside of a large fixed cylinder of radius r (r>R). Show that the period of Oscillation of the rolling cylinder is equivalent to that of a simple pendulum whose length is 3(R-r)/2.
