With the intention of NOT letting the grass grow under its feet, immediately it was founded The Northern Magic Circle's first Official action was to forward a strong protest to the Editor of "The Radio Times" anent the exposures therein by Harry Green. The line taken was that, while no-one can reasonably object to genuine enquirers writing in for details of tricks and thus receiving the secrets individually, strong objection is taken to such secrets being published in the Radio Times for all and sundry to read, whether interested or not. Further, it was pointed out, such secrets are not Harry Green's for him to 'give away', and, as the magical fraternity had served the B.B.C. well in the past in contributing to its programmes, the B.B.C. should not risk rousing the animosity of magicians in the British Isles, particularly as they, The B.B.C., would be almost certain to require such magicians' services in the future.

At the moment of going to print, no reply has been received from the B.B.C., but the said Harry Green, in his unscheduled appearance on T.V. on Wednesday, the 25th of April, did mention that protests have been received from Magic Circles and that he considered he was not doing magicians harm by publishing their secrets ! He also added that such secrets could be purchased in many books on magic ! The Northern Magic Circle eagerly awaits the reply from the B.B.C.
