'The Story Of Magic' 2 part series narrated By Ricky Jay...

Postby Ben James » October 8th, 2011, 3:51 am

Hi all,

Is this available on DVD/VHS. I have been to the A&E site but cannot find it, tried searching everywhere.
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Is it possible you mean: "Grand Illusions: The Story of Magic" parts 1 & 2? If so, this is available from Amazon(US). I don't think that Ricky Jay was the narrator tho.

"The Story of Magic" (with Ricky Jay) was once available on VHS (a two-tape set) through A&E, but I never saw it released on DVD. I suspect you'll have to watch eBay.

Yes ebay is the best place to find stuff like that :)

Thankyou for the replies. I just got emailed back by A&E and they confirm that this is no longer available from them. Looks like Ebay is the only option here.

Thanks.

The Amazon listing appears to be for Part I only. Part II deals with American magic.

I agree with Eric. I have the original A&E set and it is two tapes, not one.
