Fremantle-backed Wild Blue Media is set to launch Stonehenge: The Hidden Truth, commissioned to continue research at the historical site, leading to the discovery of a new monument.
The new documentary features live archaeology as experts find evidence to reveal the Durrington Pits, a giant ring of prehistoric shafts that are 20 times the size of Stonehenge and created over 4,000 years ago.
Stonehenge: The Hidden Truth will shed light on the people who built the original monument and explain how the Durrington Pits came to be. It features insight from landscape archaeologist Vince Gaffney and Stonehenge expert and archaeologist Susan Greaney.
Produced by Wild Blue Media, the film is directed by Kate Dooley. Local versions will air on Science Channel in the U.S., Channel 5 in the U.K. and SBS in Australia. It is set to debut in the U.S. on November 28.
Céire Clark, senior acquisitions manager at Fremantle International, said: “The scale of what has been discovered is extraordinary—we are immensely proud to be attached to this show that has changed the story of Stonehenge.”
Cameron Balbirnie, executive producer at Wild Blue Media, commented: “Having been a part of major discoveries from the Arctic to the Amazon, it’s been such a privilege to partner with such fantastic scientists and archaeologists on such an extraordinary story right here in Britain.”
