"There was a great deal to enjoy in this compilation of superlative magical excellence, and the show was a great and golden credit to its makers. The magical content was almost uniformly superb, and all but the most obsessive magic fans will have seen items they hadn't seen before"

 

What of the Top 50 itself? Naturally, there can never be a definitive 'Top 50' list of tricks, and the controversy is part of the fun. In any case, the show would more fairly have been titled 'The Fifty Greatest Magic Tricks of which there is some video tape we could get the rights to, missing out the ones which are good but just don't work on TV'.
