There are about 1,000 stone circles in the British Isles. If you include other megalithic monuments such as stone rows, long barrows, cairns, cists, standing stones and others, the number runs to tens of thousands. Yet most people can only name one, Stonehenge. STANDING WITH STONES is a unique travelogue in which presenter Rupert Soskin and director Michael Bott discover the wealth that is Megalithic Britain. More than two years in the making, this broadcast-standard film, written and presented by explorer and naturalist Soskin, takes you from the tip of Cornwall to the Scottish Isles on an unforgettable journey through the landscape of our ancient past

Good look at megalithic monuments in the British Isles by a layman- if you stick with it he comes up with some unique ideas here and there. Worth watching if you're seriously interested in the subject.
note: the presenter was correct in stating that William Stukely's writings on the megalithic monuments were an inspiration for William Blake's poem " Jerusalem ( the emanation of the giant Albion ) " - another poem alsoby Blake called " Jerusalem " but with different words were used for the hymn by Sir Hubert Parry.

totally brilliant. shows many of the thousands of megalithic stone circles etc that cover the british isles. also tells some background thats interesting. he is wrong about the druids & jerusalem tho - i googled it & the blake it referred to is NOT the hymn, its a different poem, which was disappointing as i thpught it a good tale. made me totally homesick
