The Glasgow Hustle
Noted magician R. Paul Wilson has signed on with the BBC to produce an eight-week series called "The Real Hustle" where he cons unsuspecting Brits out of their hard-earned money. Judging from the description it sounds like he's going to demonstrate a good number of well known cons, including (presumably) the lottery ticket, the necklace/violin hustle, the bank examiner, and probably several more. It should be a fun show to watch, so let's hope that BBC America picks it up for us Yanks. I'd love to see him try to pull the Run Out and get it on film, but we'll just have to wait and see.
