We were going to blame it on a typo but knew we would be caught out. How can someone mean to type “Tim Ellis and Sue-Anne Webster” but instead type “Dr. Alexander”?
In yesterday’s award-winning article about India television and Dr. Alexander, we did not do our fact checking.
We wrote, with our typical aplomb:
We hear that Dr. Alexander – Guiness World Record Holder for the the Longest Magic Show – will perform on the series.
Yes, Dr. Alexander will appear on the series but he is not the Guiness World Record Holder for the Longest Magic Show.
That honor rightfully belongs to Inside Magic Favorites Tim Ellis and Sue-Anne Webster.
Even as we typed the Dr. Alexander story, we seemed to remember reading some where about an attempt at the Guiness World Record for Longest Show being performed by Tim Ellis and Sue-Anne Webster.
Maybe it was on one of those message boards or a mailing list, we thought.
We could not remember where we read that Tim Ellis and Sue-Anne Webster held the Guiness World Record and, in fact, had beaten Dr. Alexander’s own record.
