In 1973, a one-off Magpie film looked at London's streets and markets through the eyes of children attending Islington's Anna Scher Children s Theatre.

A wry, energetic and irreverent comedy show of a kind never previously seen and certainly not one for the easily offended! You Must Be Joking duly launched an unknown bunch of kids onto the TV screen. Led by writer-performers Ray Burdis and John Blundell, and featuring future BAFTA winner (and drama academy founder) Pauline Quirke, the talented teenagers were 'supervised' by comedian and long-suffering lone adult Jim Bowen. In between topical and satirical sketches, Elvis Payne took a cynical look at the week's news, and live music came from youthful popsters Flintlock, led by the multi-talented Michael Holoway. Many of the show's stars would go on to enjoy successful careers in television.
