The Battle for Stonehenge: A Culture Show Special

Stonehenge is Britain’s most famous prehistoric monument and known around the world, but all is not well with the sacred stones, with MPs describing the surrounding site as a `national disgrace’ and a `shameful shambles’. Now, after decades of disputes over what should be done, English Heritage has just 12 months to create a setting it deserves. In this hour-long special, Alastair Sooke reveals why Stonehenge has long been a place of conflict and controversy, and that passions still run high at a place where druids, archaeologists and scientists fight to have their views heard on its future.

With thanks to BBC Pictures and TVCatchup.com. The program is broadcast on BBC 2 on Saturday the 21st of June at 7:30pm.
