Checking my What's On TV listings magazine (other listings magazines are available :D ), I see that Channel 5 are showing Paul Daniels: My Life in Magic on Friday October 20th at 10.00PM. The blurb is:

"During the 1980s and early 1990s, Paul Daniels was one of the most famous entertainers in the UK. This programme looks back on the star's life and career, from how he started performing magic aged 12, through to his TV debut on Opportunity Knocks in 1970 and ensuing success, and revisits some of his best loved tricks with never before seen archive footage."

and

"One off documentary revisiting the highlights of Paul Daniels' decades long career as a TV magician via interviews with his friends, family, contemporaries, and admirers including Stephen Mulhern, Penn and Teller, and David Copperfield."

Set those Skyboxes or whatever gizmos you folks use these days!

I suspect that, as is usual with TV documentaries, it'll be mostly talking heads and ad breaks.

We could be wrong but I fear you may be right Barry, lot's of 'celebs' wittering on about Paul's stuff. Far better to just show him in action methinks!

Sadly, I also see that C5 are following this with TV's 50 Best Magic Tricks. By my reckoning it's about the 367th time its been shown.... this year... so far... :(
