This is a clip from my film, 'Standing with Stones'.
Produced and directed by myself (Michael Bott) and presented by my old friend naturalist and explorer Rupert Soskin, it is a first-hand account from Rupert of a journey through the British Isles and Ireland, starting at the tip of Cornwall and ending on the Scottish Isles, visiting over 100 Neolithic and Bronze age monuments en route.
The entire project was conceived and realised (as in filmed, edited, music specially composed and CGI graphics created) entirely by us – just us two guys with a camera, a camper van, two very understanding wives – and a passion for stones! It took two and a half years of our lives to complete and we loved every minute of it.
Standing with Stones is a documentary film that takes the viewer on a journey of discovery revealing the wealth and extent of our Neolithic and Bronze Age heritage.
If you ever wondered what it would be like to travel through England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland, visiting the most intriguing and enigmatic monuments that our ancestors left us, then this film is for you.
Described by one magazine reviewer as "A stunning study of standing stones. A work of art." (Fortean Times), this is no amateur travelogue. Written and presented by writer and explorer Rupert Soskin and shot and edited by broadcast producer Michael Bott, this film is a stunningly beautiful and absorbing two and a quarter hour tour of our ancient heritage in the company of an engaging and knowledgable host - the journey of a lifetime.
