This program attempts to come up with a definition of magic acceptable to even the most hardened skeptic. Producer Margot Adler says, "Magic could be defined as the acknowledgement, acceptance, and use of unseen but natural forces." Sources used in this program include: An ABC of Witchcraft: Past and Present by Doreen Valiente, St. Martin's Press; Real Magic by Isaac Bonowitz, a Berkeley/Medallion paperback; The Medium, the Mystic, and the Physicist by Dr. Lawrence LeShan, Viking Press; Issues number 2 and 3 of The New Broom (Texas); Witchcraft, the sixth sense by Justine Glass. Music: Theme songs: "Can Cerridwen" by Gwydion Pendderwen from the album "Songs of the old religion" from Nemeton; "Seven hundred elves" by Steeleye Span on Chrysalis Recordings; selections by Alan Stivell--"The renaissance of the Celtic harp" and "Chemins de Terre", both albums available on Polydor Records; "Holy magick" by Graham Bond on Vertigo Records. Produced by Margot Adler with technical production by Pete Zanger.
