Are You Certain? is an episode of the BBC schools TV series Scene from the 1970s, covering citizenship for secondary school pupils.

A programme modelled after the 1960s BBC quiz shows So You Think You...?, presented by Cliff Michelmore and Magnus Magnusson. Scene's version is presented by Paddy Feeny and features Lynne and Walter (played by Jane Carr and Billy Harmon) from the previous programme, Shop Around, preparing to get married. They are shown a dingy flat by a dingy landlord, attempt to buy a new cooker, and drown their sorrows in a coffee bar.

After each of these three sketches, viewers are asked to write down their answers to a series of true-or-false statements such as "there is a standard price for electricity and the landlord cannot make you pay more," and "a husband is responsible for all his wife's debts."
