From 1989-1990, British television network ITV aired two seasons of a show called The Best of Magic. Hosted by Geoffrey Durham, Simon Mayo, and Anthea Turner, the show did exactly what it says on the tin: each episode showed off the best names of magic of the era, including the likes of Max Maven, Juan Tamariz, Eugene Burger, The Pendragons, Lance Burton, and more. A total of 12 60-minute episodes were produced, and you can watch them all thanks to uploads from YouTube user World Greatest Magicians.
