Alan Davies Houdini documentary airs in the UK, April 20

There was a special press screening at The Hippodrome Casino in London today for the new documentary, The Magic of Houdini with Alan Davies. The program will air in the UK on ITV as part if their Perspectives series on April 20, Easter Sunday. No word on a U.S. air date.

Our good friend and Master Locksmith Mick Hanzlik was invited to the screening as the show used his replica Mirror Handcuffs. Mick says they are "keeping tight-lipped about it until closer to air time", but he was able to give a few details:

"Well John, I’m back from the screening. The program is wonderful! Very precise and accurate (apart from a date they got wrong – but nobody would ever know that). Filmed in New York, Las Vegas (Copperfield’s collection!) and the London Hippodrome. Alan Davies is the presenter, who is the star of a TV drama series Jonathan Creek – a magical investigator, and he is very good and knows his subject. My Mirror Cuffs got a good viewing in the Hippodrome segment."

Below is a photo of Alan Davies doing a Q&A after the screening.

Thank you Mick!
