Witches: A Century of Murder

In this two part documentary series, Dr Suzannah Lipscomb goes in search of the origins of the gruesome mass witch hunts and trials that infested the British Isles 400 years ago. Through original documents and powerful drama, Suzannah uncovers the fear of Satan that drove the persecutors to such extreme lengths and what it was like for the innocent victims tortured and executed for crimes they couldn’t possibly have committed.
