Comedian Stanley Baxter played Mr Majeika, a wizard from Walpurgis who fails his sorcery exams for the 17th time and is banished to the Britland village of Much Barty, where he moves into a windmill and becomes a teacher at St Barty’s Academy.

His students in Class 3 included Melanie (Claire Sawyer) and Thomas (Andrew Read) – who know that Mejeika is a wizard – and obnoxious rich brat Hamish Bigmore (Simeon Pearl). The headmaster was Mr Potter (Roland MacLeod).

The series was filmed in various locations around Matfield, Kent, including Grade 1 listed Matfield House, which formed the backdrop for the fictional school, with internal sequences shot in the garage.
