My friends,

Busker Billy Kidd,

Wayne Houchin and two others will be starring in a new series on
The Discovery Channel.

Billy cut her teeth as a busker mainly in The UK. I'm very proud of her.
Please watch for it on November 11th.

I'll have to wait for Canadian air dates (it doesn't look like it's on the schedule in Canada yet), but I'll look forward, in particular, to seeing more of Billy Kidd. I've seen a couple of videos, but that's it.

Here's one:

Very engaging. (And there's a familiar face in the crowd at 1:10!)

I am disappointed in this series. When I heard about the show , Wayne stated magic is not exposed. It is offensive for those of us who use hidden science to make magic. To say they are not exposing actual magic tricks is wrong.
Sure you can find weaker and smaller demos in science class but you can also you say the same about magic tricks in books. But Magicians have always used science, sometimes cutting edge, to make magic.

It is really sad that magicians of this caliber, who worked hard to make effects look like magic, have no feel this is not exposure of any kind just because they do not see science as a tool to make magic.
So what, now I have to throw my Newton tube away since they exposed it in large form? Why is it OK for them to explain what they do on this show yet would be upset if someone exposed one of their tricks on line. IS it OK to expose their effects if I explain the science behind their moves?
