Not in depth, but great beginning for anyone interested in the history of magic. Provides a good start without being pedantic.

There is a need for more DVDs on this topic. Years ago, programs dealing with the history of magic were shown on TV and one could make a tape of them. Programs like this do not seem to exist any more. Popularity with magic comes and goes. Magic was in a very poor state until Doug Henning revived interest in it back in the 1970s. We are now in a state of decline except for live shows in Las Vegas and other similar places. Do not overlook part II of the Story of Magic. It is excellent also.

Opening this on Christmas day, our amateur magician's (and his brother) eyes lit up. I like getting things that bring a taste of history to the interests of today's children.
