On Valentine's Day in 1956 a young woman and alleged witch - Olive Rudy - was found dead in a field, the victim of an apparent ritual murder. The following year farmer's daughter Betty Tring, her bitter rival for the love of Tom Strafford, was acquitted of the offence. Now in 1974 Tom Strafford has returned from the USA and finds himself on trial for murder. He argues he is the victim of mistaken identity and merely found the body at the scene. Written by
