Black-cloaked riders of the night; brides of Satan - some of the images that spring to mind when thinking of witches.
Were the witches of old really clinging to the vestiges of a long-forgotten pagan religion, or persecuted because the world was afraid of powerful women? Roald Dahl ,
Lady Antonia Fraser and Keith Thomas are among those who tell Jenny Cuffe why the figure of the witch still has such a hold on the imagination of both children and adults.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
