DOUG HENNING WORLD OF MAGIC - THE 1982 SHOWS

DOUG HENNING WORLD OF MAGIC SET #2 - THE 1982 SHOWS

By 1974, magic had lost its mass appeal until a skinny, bucktoothed kid from Winnipeg became an overnight star in an unlikely Broadway musical called The Magic Show. Doug Henning, with his refreshingly modern approach to the art of illusion, permanently changed the face of magic and reintroduced an entire generation of audiences to grand illusion as a theatrical art.

Taken direct off Beta recordings (the Beta format was always superior quality to VHS) these first generation copies offer maximum picture and sound quality…..excellent rating broadcast quality  8.5 out of 10.
