The presenter continues his examination of the history of belief, superstition and religious experience in Britain. In this edition, he explores how, in pre-Christian society, the Roman gods influenced life and examines why, with human sacrifice a very real threat, people considered it vital to keep the deities on side. Tony also tries to re-create a full-scale replica of the Wicker Man, but draws the line at voluntary self-castration required by the goddess Cybele.
