Tony Robinson and science journalist Becky McCall conclude their investigations into paranormal puzzles from the past with a look at a mysterious claim of mass reincarnation. In the sixties a group of unconnected people recounted their ‘past life’ dreams to a local Bath psychiatrist. These dreams suggested that they were experiencing flashbacks to former lives as members of a fated 13th century religious sect from France known as the Cathars. Could a group of ordinary West Country folk really have been possessed by the victims of the Inquisition in a medieval genocide?
