-- "And the remarkable thing about (James) Hutton, I think, is that he arrived at an understanding of eternity, through evidence...." -- David Farrier, Literature and Environment, University of  Edinburgh.

"In the first of three films, "Richard Fisher, a Senior Journalist for the BBC "traces Huttons's steps to one of geology's most important locations in Scotland. There Hutton identified a formation of rocks that would transform how we think about time."
