TONY ROBINSON'S GODS AND MONSTERS: Tony Robinson explores the weird and wonderful history of belief, superstition and religious experience in Britain. For 2000 years, Britain has been a Christian country. Or has it? In fact, our ancestors actually kept many other dark, fantastical beliefs alive which Tony explores in great depth from The Undead to Evil Spirits and Witches amongst many others. It was a world underpinned by outlandish, dangerous and plain weird beliefs. Ideas that today seem unbelievable, but were seen as uncontroversial and hugely influential, with some having shaped our history, as much as mainstream religion. TONY ROBINSON'S CRIME & PUNISHMENT: Tony Robinson goes on a fascinating and sometimes bizarre journey to discover the origins of our laws and what we do to people when they break from them. From trials by boiling water, through the decapitation of a king, to the emergence of a modern democracy, it is a journey that starts two thousand years ago and remains unfinished today. We find out how the Normans created the first surveillance society, how today s compensation culture was started by Anglo Saxons and how a man whose body was kept in a London cupboard inspired us to stop stringing people up and start locking them up instead. Throughout his historical journey, Tony plays the part of the accused, judge, jury and executioner and discovers the often strange circumstances from which the main tenants of modern English law emerged.
