According to modern geology, our world is over four and a half billion years old, and the geological features have been sculpted over vast eons of time. Everyone knows that planet earth is unimaginably ancient. It's common knowledge that geological forces have acted slowly over millions of years to form the rocks beneath our feet. But what if what everyone 'knows' is wrong? Set in Stone takes the viewer on a visual odyssey of discovery. Shot in high definition on location around Britain, this DVD transports the viewer to the spectacular scenery, awe inspiring landscapes and beautiful coastlines of England. Set in Stone presents evidence for Earth's catastrophic past to enable the viewer to ask important questions Most significantly, we pay a visit to Siccar Point in Scotland, made famous by the pioneering naturalist, James Hutton, whose ovbservations have sparked an earthquake in the science of geology that still reverberates to this day. Along the way, some intriguing questions are posed: Were the rocks around us formed slowly and gradually - or suddenly during catastrophic events? Did the history of the world unfold over vast eras of time, or much shorter periods? And what do the rocks really tell us about the geological history of our world?
