THE PATHE TO MAGIC

British Pathe, the world's leading multimedia resource with a history stretching back over a century. The finest and most comprehensive archive of fabulous footage and stunning stills. Thanks to Richard Kaufman of Genii Magazine and David Britland of Cardopolis, we've learned that Pathe has updated their online archives to include some amazing footage of many performers from the history of magic. Kalanag, June McComb, Ali Bongo, Alan Alan, Arnold Debiere, Jimmy Rogers, Billy McComb, Robert Harbin and Alan Shaxon all can be visited here! For example, the clip below is from a news report on an event at the Magic Circle during which the media was invited to bring their cameras to see if they could catch the magicians at work. Enjoy this fantastic resource!
