Magpie

A children's magazine show that gave ITV its answer to Blue Peter. The series launched in 1968 with hosts Susan Stranks, Tony Bastable and former DJ Pete Brady, and we have an example of the original title sequence, complete with the monochrome vignette skyline ident. The second clip shows the original colour titles, dating from 1969 – not 1968 as Frank Muir states in his TV Heaven introduction (Channel Four 1992).
