Men of Rock, from Alston Mabry

February 1, 2016 |

 We've been enjoying an excellent BBC series, Men of Rock, about the Scottish geologists who moved that science forward: "Geologist Iain Stewart retraces the steps of a band of maverick pioneers who made ground-breaking discoveries in the landscape of Scotland about how our planet works."

The series has terrific photography that highlights the beauty of Scotland. For me, the science is fascinating because while I have read the general outline, the series does a nice job of presenting the actual observations that these men were making, as well as the conclusions that were the result.

Three parts:

Part 1: Deep Time

Part 2: Moving Mountains

Part 3: The Big Freeze

We use Chromecast to put it to the telly, and the BBC science shows alone make the investment well worth it.
