Dynamo Magician Impossible

The world's most talked-about magician, Dynamo and his UKTV series Magician Impossible, are set to receive a special airing on BBC One it was announced today.

BBC One has picked up the rights from UKTV to air selected episodes from series one of Dynamo: Magician Impossible from early January. Three episodes of the four-part series, which premiered on UKTV's entertainment channel Watch in 2011, will air on BBC One at 5.35pm from Saturday January 11th.

Like his dear grandfather before him, Dynamo grew up practicing precision card-handling and developing powerful magical skills. In Dynamo: Magician Impossible, his very first television series, the 28-year-old travels the globe as the unassuming anti-hero from Bradford who just happens to astound everyone he meets.

Dynamo?s unique and innovative brand of magic captures the imagination of all those who see him perform, whether it is members of the public at a bar on a Miami rooftop or celebrities such as Tinie Tempah, Natalie Imbruglia or Ian Brown.

Now in its third season on Watch, Dynamo: Magician Impossible quickly became one of the biggest ever Pay TV hits in 2011 when it launched, with the series winning plaudits from BAFTA, the Royal Television Society, the Broadcast Awards and the National Television Awards.

A brand new season of Dynamo: Magician Impossible ? made by Inner Circle Films and Phil McIntyre Entertainment - is currently in production and will premiere on UKTV's Watch later in 2014.
