Rare BBC Film: The Power of the Witch

A rare BBC documentary about witchcraft, shown just once on UK television in 1971, has come to light and been featured on the website Dangerous Minds.

Called The Power of the Witch, the documentary features interviews with Doreen Valiente, Eleanor Bone, Cecil Williamson and Alex and Maxine Sanders.

It offers a fascinating glimpse into what people thought about witchcraft back in the early 1970s, talking about Wicca, historical views on witchcraft and also discussing Satanism, black magic and exorcism.

You can watch The Power of the Witch directly on YouTube:
