Years ago during the Doug Henning TV specials I had them all on Beta. I also erased all of them years ago (foolish) and was wondering are these shows available for sale and does anyone know where they can be obtained.

Thanks,

Tony

What a fool. You could have been our hero and had them downloaded on DVD and made a fortune. I have not come across all episodes of his specials. Some you can download on Youtube, but they are poor copies and do not show complete shows.

That would depend on if the could get the rights from the network the specials aired on, and/or the blessings of Henning's family. I don't believe you can sell any network's televisions series. Or specials without the consent of the network on which they aired.

Had them all, now I am looking to pay anything for them. I guess I needed the tapes back then.

This was not his finest hour or even thirty seconds for that matter.

Wish it was. Unfortunately, he did he rep a little harm. But those that have vivid memories of his tv specials and his live performances just look past that and remember the terrific performer that was Doug Henning.

Doug is going to be honoured by the Canadian Walk of Fame this weekend. The television broadcast of the ceremony will air on Wednesday, October 20 on CTV (Canadian network).

According to David Ben (Tricks & Tweets), there will be a short video tribute which will include clips from the TV specials.

Apparently it is on at 9 pm tomorrow (Wed.) evening on Global TV of Canada.

Since many of us can not get the show here in the US, can someone record the Henning segment and put a link to it here?

Please & Thanks! Smile

Unfortunately, because we're lame-a_s_s Canadians, nobody felt it was important to invite any of Doug's family to the event.

IMHO, this renders the award disingenuous to the max.

Unbelievable.

I wonder why David Ben didn't contact any of the family. This is very unlike him, unless he has had some kind of negative dealings with them in the past. I just can't imagine this at all.

I'm not sure how much of his family remains; has a long-time friend of his I know that his father was a commercial airline pilot that died in a horrible airplane crash while Doug was still a kid.

He's got lots of family.......read the article.

If you're a friend of his, you know he's got sisters, a wife, nieces, nephews..........of course he's got family.

I think The Magic Castle might have them in their library. Not for sale, but they can be viewed if you're a member.

I have some great footage of Doug when he helped me with some PSA's back in the 80's. I taught him the $100 bill switch and he just could not get it on tape. Later that day he performed it flawlessly on Carson. I show some of these clips when I do my lectures. If I am scheduled to do a lecture at your club, let me know if you want me to bring it.

THE magician responsible for brining magic back into American theater experience and tv reality. Unlike some magic magazine publishers opinions, Doug started it all back in 1976. Once heard a Hollywood Magic Castle veteran member say, as he was looking up at a Doug Henning Poster next to the Dining Room, "David Copperfield should thank Henning everyday for his career".
Nothing is truer than the incomprehensible, because the sum total of our knowledge consists of the fact that we know nothing. Our reality is an illusion. Thus illusion is reality-Punx
