Young Talent Time!


I came across a Young Talent Time fansite today and on it they listed the contents of the last 8 years of episodes. It was fascinating to see just how many magicians appeared on TV from 1980 to 1988 thanks to that show. (It would be very interesting to see who appeared on the episodes from 1971 to 1980).

Unfortunately the website doesn't list the names of contestants, just what they did, and there were plenty of magicians! (Myself, Duck Cameron, Paul Bowen, and so many others).

So, take a look at this who's who of magicians (I wonder if anyone has ALL of these performances on tape?) and I know it's not complete but it's fascinating nonetheless:
