When the BBC documentary “The History of Magic” was first shown I remember being annoyed at this clip. Paul Daniels performing poor sleight of hand whilst professing to have thoroughly researched Max Malini. He obviously never watched the Vernon Revelations series (and yet still calls himself a magician!) in which The Professor explains actually witnessing the colour change Malini used. Daniels is talking utter nonsense.
Oh and by the way – I never knew Paul Daniels invented a colour change in the 1970’s, does anyone know the name of this or where it’s published? 😉
