Does anyone know if video exists of this levitation. John Gaughan presented it a few years ago at the history conference.

Matt, I was the Tech Director for the Conference when John presented this effect with Tina and saw it many times from every angle. Although I know he has footage of it, I'm not sure any other video of it exists.

I've only seen a few photos of the performance but have no doubt it was quite spectacular. Thanks for your input, Ray.

I love the silk/ribbon tied hoops used in Astarte, Carmo's, etc.

I found Jeffrey Atkins "Carmo's Mummy" performed on the Paul Daniels show. Not the smoothest of versions.
