This post is to know if anyone has that video.

I just reviewed a topic of Fred Kaps and some quoted that show, and a tape some people may have.

For what I read, Kaps there performs Homing Card, Smoking his Thumb and Chinese Sticks.

I'm very interested in this, I'd be willing to trade for some Kaps material I own (of course, not official material).

I hope I'm not out of line for asking this.
Thanks,

Antonio

Fred Kaps performed this show for the BBC in the mid 70s. It was produced by John Fisher, who also produced the PARKINSON chat show at the same time which had:
Ricky Jay, Fred Kaps and Richiardi Jnr as guests. Each of these three were then given their own 'Special' by the BBC. Kaps pereformed his beautiful 'Chink-a-Chink' routine with some gorgeous brass weights (made for him by Tonny Van Rhee).
He also performed his 'Floating Cork' (Marketed by Ken Brooke) and, a number of other items in his own immaculate style. On his own 'special', he performed the 'Chinese Sticks', a 'Ring & Rope' routine with the borrowed finger ring penetrating the stem of a wine glass! (Pete Biro's idea I believe). He also performed the best version of 'The Homing Card' ever, as far as I'm concerned!
I have both of these shows on video somewhere, but unfortunately they're not for
sale! It might be worth advertising for them in magical magazines or on e-bay?
The only other alternative is to email John Fisher himself and see if he can help?
Due to copyright regulations however, I think you'll be lucky. Anyway, I'll keep an ear to the ground for you and, I'll let you know if I hear anything worthwhile. You have good taste! Good luck. Regards, Steve.
