It was 1989 and David Williamson had become a regular performer at our MacMillan Magic Convention, London. That particular year, David treated our audience to an exceptional twenty minute performance/lecture finishing with his full Raccoon performance.
Following the convention, we had a huge number of people requesting that we release the footage. As it had been filmed, arrangements were made and it was made available on video. Although this was filmed with only one camera, and without radio mike etc. the content was so good, it became our top seller of 1990.
