WALLS      EXCERPT RT 7:00

In the history of art and architecture, walls and their gates are seldom mentioned.

This film visits walls of the world, both great and minor: Hadrian's Wall across Britain; the Great Wall of China; the infamous Berlin Wall; the city walls of Rome, of Dubrovnik in Croatia, and Ston in Montenegro.  Visited also are various citadels in Spain, Sardinia and Scotland, and the landscape wall installation of artist Andy Goldsworthy in the Hudson Valley, New York. 

This investigation includes descriptions, use, construction, and especially aesthetics of wall building.

"WALLS" encourages the viewer to travel to -- and savor -- the unique experience of great walls of the world.  Walls are most often useful, but they can also be quite beautiful.    2015 (RT 61:00)

TIMESTONES II    EXCERPT RT 3:00

Continuing my voyage among the megaliths. The emphasis here is on the facts and theories which account for the siting and design of dolmens, henges, passage graves and other complexes, from the Orkney islands to Brittany in France.

Archaeoastronomy, earth currents, dowsing, ley lines and related theories are reviewed. The prehistoric invention and early use of time and record keeping, measurement, geometry and mathematics play an important part. Megalith builders sought immortality in permanent stone; their constructions have endured more than fifty centuries to astonish and engage us today.

TIMESTONES I and II are designed to encourage the viewer to travel and experience the spirit and power of the megaliths.    2015 (RT ??:00)

TIMESTONES I    EXCERPT RT 3:00

A personal lifelong voyage among megaliths: ancient standing stones in Britain, Europe, and as far away as Armenia and Malta. Among the monuments investigated are Stonehenge, Avebury, Callanish and the Ring of Brodgar in the Orkney Islands.

We climb giant mounds of Silbury Hill, New Grange, Maeshowe and La Hougue Bei. We transit passage graves like La Roche aux Fees or Gavrinis, or La Table des Marchands and search out dolmens, menhirs, quoits and hill figures on remote moors and hillsides. We walk among whole landscapes of marching stones like Carnac in Brittany.

The approach is scientific, intellectual and aesthetic, but above all spiritual. It is an opportunity to connect with the minds and hearts of our ancient ancestors. 2015 (RT 37:00)
