Re: 1st TV magic

The history of what was on the earliest TV broadcasts, which were private not public, or localized in a small area, is murky. At this point I would imagine it would be impossible to come up with a definitive and provable answer about the first magician to appear on TV.

Re: THR Story Re: Roy's Accident

White tigers and lions are not meant to be saved from extinction. They are a genetic mutation that should be left on its own to die out. People in the world of animal conservation were always unhappy about what Siegfried and Roy were doing with the white cats, which disturbed the natural order.

If you read all of the witness statements that Mullins linked to, you see one where it was stated that tapping the tiger on the nose was standard practice, and something the tigers were trained to respond to.

No hairspray, no beehive hairdo, no tall lady, no laser. Just an angry cat and Roy misjudged that. This might not happen today because most performers are wearing earpieces with audio fed in. If the stagehand saw that the cat was not behaving normally, the information could have been relayed to Roy ...
