In this two part drama-documentary series, Dr Suzannah Lipscomb goes in search of the origins of the deadly craze of mass witch hunts and trials that infected the British Isles 400 years ago. Hundreds of innocent people were persecuted, tortured and put to death in a hysterical effort to stamp out the scourge of witchcraft. Through original documents and powerful drama, Suzannah uncovers the fear of Satan that drove the persecutors to such awful lengths and what it was like for the innocent victims tortured and executed for crimes they couldn't possibly have committed.
