Hello all

In the late 1990s Black Artefacts released a VHS video tape of the Black Hart Productions' Haunted House character - 'Allain the Teller of Tales'. The video was only sold in the UK and Europe and unfortunatley after just a couple of years the company who were reproducing the video tapes ceased trading and the master VHS tapes 'disappeared'. For many years all hope of further production of the Allain the Teller of Tales video faded.

Then in January 2018, by sheer luck, the original studio U-Matic video tapes were discovered in a cardboard box deep in the dungeons at Castle Black Hart! A company who still had the obsolete equipment to read the U-Matic tapes was found and the tapes carefully transported to their studios. The video was then successfully digitised and edited with new titles and credits and transferred to DVD.

I'm very excited to say that the Black Video - Allain the Teller of Tales is now available once more but now on DVD. What's more these DVDs can be played world-wide and on laptops and PCs.

Disc one features 5 incredible routines from Allain the Teller of Tales (Frank Allen). On disc two is an interview with Frank Allen by Gordon Astley, where the 'secrets' are all revealed as well as discussions about scriopting, character and presentation.

You can read more about this on the Black Artefacts website. www.blackhart.co.uk/video.html

Will these "play" in the US or are they European format only? Thanks.

It would probably help all concerned if I were to read it through. Thanks for assisting.

I hate it when they come back from the grave.

Hello Winks

To answer your question, the Black DVD is not region specific, so it will play on DVD players world-wide, and it will also play on laptops and PCs. I am very pleased about this as it gives many more bizarre magicians and those interested in the genre a chance to see the superb act of Allain the Teller of Tales.

Oh yes, Weepinwil let me make it clear - it is the video that has come back from the grave, not Frank Allen, who never went there in the first place!

Smile

Thanks for clarifying that Black Hart, All I could see was a law suit for burial alive. That's why I have the "Bring 'Em Back Alive" policy you can buy. If I bury your loved one alive I will refund your money; However, once the seal on the coffin is broken, the warranty is null and void.

I would be interested if it was available for download. Alas, I no longer own a TV (consequently no DVD player) and my laptop and mobile devices have no DVD drives anymore.

Hello Lucien

No download, just the physical DVD - with no region restriction.

I have updated the shopping cart and website to make this clear.

Thanks for your feedback, it is much appreciated.
