When Magic Goes Horribly Wrong features a combination of archive, talking heads, graphics and originally shot material telling the amazing stories of when magic performances have gone wrong, with sometimes funny, often dramatic, and even deadly consequences.

With jaw-dropping clips the programme is a rollercoaster ride through the funny, tense and just downright crazy world of magic. Contributions from leading figures from the world of magic, as well as interviews with the people involved – the assistants, local press and horrified audience members who witnessed the gruesome moment things went wrong – mean we dissect not only what went wrong but also why.
