Borra Sr. died several years ago. I don't think he ever made any instructional videos

Borra Sr is certainly a legend, I followed him at Scala Madrid back in 1990, but missed seeing him work, then while working in Monte Carlo I saw him performing in Loews Casino Monte Carlo back in 1996 not too long before he died. He was amazing, it sent a chill down the back of my neck. I have since worked with his son Charly Borra on a 3 month contract in Germany and like his father he also wow's the audiences with his cigarette tricks and pickpocket routine. Charly has a great personality and a pleasure to work with.

It's a few years too late in answering the original question, but I believe that Borra was also a highly skilled linguist. He could speak 14 languages fluently. He didn’t count Finnish or Iranian “because he could only perform his act and carry out simple conversations in them”. You think he might have made a bit more of an effort--lazy, or what?
There are 10 kinds of people: those who understand binary numbers, and those who don't.

I have finally posted the clips of Borra's act!!! The full footage was too long for youtube, so I had to split it into 2 parts... You can see them at:
