More4 presents the first opportunity to see all five parts of Tony Robinson's series that explores the weird and wonderful history of belief, superstition and religious experience in Britain. For 2000 years, Britain has been a Christian country. Or has it? In fact, our ancestors actually kept many other dark, fantastical beliefs alive. It was a world underpinned by outlandish, dangerous and plain weird beliefs. Ideas that today seem unbelievable, but were seen as uncontroversial and hugely influential; some shaped our history as much as mainstream religion. This previously unseen edition investigates belief in witches.
