Houdini Unlocking the Mystery on H2, February 4

This Tuesday, February 4, HISTORY's spin-off channel H2 (formerly History International) will air the documentary Houdini: Unlocking the Mystery twice during the day. Is this HISTORY looking to generate interest in their Houdini miniseries? Could be.

Houdini: Unlocking the Mystery first aired on Halloween in 2005. Hosted by Lance Burton, the documentary highlights footage from the 2004 Great Houdini Auction in Las Vegas, and includes rare interviews with George Hardeen and Anna Thurlow.

Houdini: Unlocking the Mystery is available on DVD. But if you haven't seen it, be sure to check out one of the showings on the 4th. In my opinion it's one of the very best Houdini documentaries.


  1. BTW, thanks to my awesome new TiVo (Christmas gift), you can expect more TV alerts here on WAH. Wishlist: Houdini. :)

  2. My Directv doesn't get H2. Dang. So bring this DVD to Scott's house the next time we do a day. I gotta see it.

    1. I will! Even if we don't get around to watching it, you can borrow it.
