Topic: WGM - world's greatest magic - avail. on dvd or vhs?
Message: Posted by: mcmc (Nov 11, 2004 03:41AM)
Hello,

I was reminiscing about the great WGM shows I saw on tv during my school days (guess I'm still a young'un!) and remembered how magical everything looked (well, everying but the mathematical tricks they used as interludes =) the ones with the clocks on the screens). Does anyone know if these broadcasts are available anywhere, be it on DVD or VHS, etc.?

Thanks in advance,
maurice

Try the search. It has been discussed before and there is a site where you can buy them in VCD format. I can't remember but do a search and you'll find it. Cheers

Do you know any address where you can buy VCDs from magic TV shows generally? Any recommendations?

A little off topic here, but I once had a tape of Omar Pasha and his black art act. I can't find it anywhere. I have a lot of tapes so I could be overlooking it. It takes forever trying to go through all the footage.

Does anyone know the name of the t.v. special on which he appeared? If I just had a title, I would know if I was searching in vain or not. I sure would appreciate your help.

The Omar Pasha act is on the Lance Burton DVD, "Secrets of Magic" in the "secrets unveiled" special

And on the Best of Magic series too.

Folks, no addresses or recommendations about an internet address or dealer that will be able to supply people who don't have American TV with dvds, videos or other things?

Silver,
Check this site: http://global.yesasia.com/en/Search/SearchResult.aspx

and type under search: The World's Greatest Magic

There are 8 VCD's in all. It's also written "Chinese version", but it is in English, if you read further on after clicking on one of them.
I bought all 8 from Yesasia and paid with a credit card. No problem. I waited for about 3-4 weeks though before I got them.
Didn't check for other stuff in Magic. Maybe they have a few more titles.
Good Luck
Guido

Are this the original captures from TV brosdcastings *The World's Greatest Magic*?
I suppose the above and the broadcastings *The Best of Magic* ar not the same?
Message: Posted by: Markymark (Jan 29, 2005 01:20PM)
Yes,These are the original 'Worlds Greatest Magic.Jeff...Max...Juan..Paul..[Gertner] They play on many dvd players even though they are Vcd's
Message: Posted by: guido (Jan 29, 2005 04:07PM)
Not to mention the low price besides.
Worth every $. Maybe, I should say: to cheap to be true...but it is so cheap on VCD format though!
