Bringing the past to life with colour

David Nixon

David Nixon and Basil Brush
David Nixon was, in his time, the most famous magician in Britain, though he wasn’t limited to magic, and his big break, in 1954, was as a panelist on the British version of the highly successful television quiz show “What’s My Line?”.
In 1966, he had a television show called “David Nixon’s Comedy Bandbox”, and a supporting act by the name of Basil Brush, who made such a good impression that he got his own show.
