  • Overview
  • Details
Travel back in time to 1692 to attend the Salem witch trials, an outbreak of mass hysteria that led to the execution of 19 people and the imprisonment of more than 150 others, in this episode from the popular PBS series. Behavioral psychologist Linda Caporeal presents a new theory about the bizarre incident: that contaminated crops may have produced a natural hallucinogenic that affected many of the accused "witches."

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this documentary series features lots of research surrounding some of history's most famous (and mysterious) fatalities. Subjects have included an American dogfight pilot shot down during WWII, unidentified victims of the Titanic, and those who perished in the Hindenburg disaster. The show uses archive video footage (when it's available) and re-enactments, both of which are graphic in their portrayals of war, disease, and death. This show isn't for young viewers, but parents who watch with tweens and teens will get some history lessons along with them.
