A new film exploring the mysteries of Britain's ancient stone circles Standing with Stones on DVD. It is an exploration into the wealth of prehistoric sites in Britain and Ireland on a scale never before attempted on film. It aims to give a fresh insight into our megalithic heritage. The entire 136-minute documentary - written and presented by Rupert Soskin and produced and directed by Michael Bott - has been researched, scripted, narrated and filmed by just the two themselves, including composing all the music and creating the computer graphics.
Rupert, an explorer who has led three expeditions into the jungles of northern Colombia to visit the Kogi Indians, has also studied archaeology, anthropology and evolutionary psychology. He first met documentary filmmaker Michael Bott when Michael was working with on a film called Origins of the Da Vinci Code, and another called The Man Behind the Da Vinci Code, for Channel 5 and the History Channel.
