The 800 series consists of 17 shows. Originally there were 20 shows but 3 of them were so badly damaged that we had to retire them. They were shot on a stretch of Waikiki Beach known as DeRussy, on the Waikiki Beach cement pier with Diamond Head looming in the background, at Waimea Bay on the famous North Shore of Oahu and at Ala Moana Beach Park with Magic Island and Diamond Head in the background. You get 17 different workouts in this series.
Magician Stephen Mulhern presents this celebration of 60 years of TV magic shows, from the early days when David Nixon and Tommy Cooper brought magic into the homes of millions to the heights scaled by groundbreaking American stars like David Copperfield and the breathtaking feats of a new generation of hip young street magicians such as David Blaine and Dynamo. He recreates some famous tricks that made TV history - including sawing David Nixon's glamorous assistant Anita Harris in half - and meets some of his heroes, including Paul Daniels and Penn and Teller. There are interviews with Darcy Oake, Dynamo, Paul Daniels, Anita Harris, Penn and Teller, Geoffrey 'The Great Suprendo' Durham and Ben Hanlin.
