Even if you are a skeptic, you may still enjoy this set. Of course, if you really get angry about this kind of stuff then you might not be interested.
Tarot section covers the 22 card Major Arcana but doesn't mention much of swords, cups, wands or pentacles or their relationship to present day playing cards. Interesting interviews with parctitioners of these arts as well as balanced comments from critics such as parapsychologists, astronomers and professors of logic and philosophy. Stuart Caplan, credited with the commercial introduction of Tarot cards into the US, is also interviewed and mention is made of the links between Tarot, Kabbalah and Astrology , the fundamentals of which were explored by the Golden Dawn and the notorious Mr Aleister Crowley.
Overall a well presented feature obviously shot for TV with a reasonable video and basic stereo soundtrack. Extras are absent which is a pity - some examples from Mr Caplan's fabulous collection of Tarot decks would have been of great interest.
