    Episode 3 - Tony Robinson and the Medieval Reincarnation:

    Tony Robinson and and Becky McCall conduct an investigation into a group of apparently unconnected people who have all experienced flashbacks to former lives as members of a fated 13th century religious sect from France.

    In the sixties, a group of unconnected people recounted their 'past life' dreams to a psychiatrist in Bath. These dreams suggested that they were experiencing flashbacks to former lives as members of a persecuted 13th century religious sect from France known as the Cathars.

    With the help of historians and psychiatrists, Tony and Becky examine the facts and ask: could a group of ordinary West Country folk really have been possessed by the victims of the Inquisition in a medieval genocide?
