TV: Witch in the Woods - Humorous History

The Radio Times description of tonight's documentary Brushing Up on British Woodland says presenter Danny Baker will be "venturing into British woodland, where the strange people of the past ...are a little stranger still." Apparently an archive clip shows "an ineffectual Lancashire witch." I guess the witches that were effectual had the foresight to get out of the camera shots...

Brushing Up on British Woodland is part of a documentary series that offers an irreverent view of bygone Britain from old TV and film footage. It is on BBC4 tonight (Thursday 20 March) at 8.30pm. For more details visit the BBC website:

Well, I've just finished watching this and it had a rare clip showing Doreen Valiente!
