This sounds very, very, very interesting. I love stories about Houdini and his life. I would venture to say if it weren't for Houdini, a lot of us wouldn't even be involved in magic for any reason. One question, is this going to be done in a serious manner or in a comedic manner, I only ask becuase comedian Alan Davies is apparently is hosting/narrating it?

Alan Davies is known over here in the UK as a stand up comedian and also is a regular on a TV show called QI, which is a comedy panel type of interesting facts show. He is also a very accomplished actor and writer. Although being known mainly as a comedian Alan Davies has also done a few more serious documentary TV shows.

The TV production company who are producing the show are known mainly for doing some very informative and serious documentaries on history and the arts, so I imagine that this Houdini programme should be quite interesting and well produced, even if Alan Davies throws in some of his sometimes hilarious quotes!

This programme was on in the UK last night. It's worth a watch as there is plenty of old TV footage of Houdini on it, even has an interview with David Copperfield.

For those state side here is a ink to it, not sure if it will work with you over there:

It was a very well done piece. As sammagic mentioned, plenty of great footage of Houdini. Congrats to Richard Sherry & Dayle Krall for thier involvement. They looked great during Metamorphosis & the Water Torture Cell.
