Men Of Rock (3×60′) – Professor Iain Stewart traces the story of how the landscape of Scotland revealed to the world how the planet works.
A band of pioneer geologists in Scotland were the first to work out the true age of the Earth, measure earthquakes, understand supervolcanoes, discover the ice ages and explain how continents move around the surface of the planet.
This new three-part series takes us through the latest science about the Earth and shows how these early mavericks and visionaries came up with revolutionary ideas that changed scientific understanding of the world forever.
