I have to watch shows like this to keep my perspective on current sociopolitical events....and my sanity.

It took the Romans six years to build Hadrian's Wall. It would take six years now just to do the planning and making sure other mandatory pieces of legislation were met.

Britain ripped away from North America." I guess that would be the FiRST Brexit.

I've watched so much British TV that I don't even notice the accents anymore. Only the Scottish and Irish differences it seems.

Tony Robinson never lets a programme down, the guy is brilliant, really enjoyed this documentary.

So basically, Hadrian's Wall didn't hold back the Picts, it just kept drunk Roman soldiers from toddling off the Sill?

As a Creationist, I don't agree with the timeline. But, I like everything else.

Wish we had a new volcano in the U.K. parliament would be a great place !!!

Excellent documentary... giving a new perspective. And Tony Robinson is great, isn't he? Educating us is all part of his "cunning plan."

I wish he had included the fault line from Inverness to Fort William - which is now the Caledonian canal and Loch Ness.

Never knew that Britain had such a volcanic history. Have been up Snowdon twice not knowing what lay beneath the surface

44:37 "the earth we live on is almost alive", almost??? Have you been walking around with your eyes closed all your life? Of course the earth is alive, very alive. Just look at the changing of seasons, the storms, earthquakes etc. Of course she's alive.

Edinburgh and Nurburg in Germany are both built on volcanoes. Nurburghring in the Eiffel forest and the Schloss next door are on volcanic plugs.

On old Geology expression.
"The more beautiful and dynamic the landscape, the more violent the geological forces that created it!

Ha! My house is built on the flanks of Arthur's seat. Looks spooky tonight bathed in the light of the full moon peek-a-booing through the storm clouds, with the wind howling through the trees🎃. Fun fact, Hutton came up with his idea of deep time for Geology which had a great influence on a young medical student by the name of Charles Darwin 🐒.
Does anyone else remember our Mr Robinson doing Jackanory? He narrated the tale of Odysseus whilst traipsing round Cornish fishing villages, it was great🏹.

Nice video! The only comment I have as that, despite hinting at what causes a continent to go wandering, you did not actually mention the force. It is convection currents inside the Earth. These are the most powerful forces on (in?) the planet. BTW, I live 28km from a very active volcano.

Thankyou, Baldric, that's an excellent idea; A brothel that caters exclusively to scientists!! The girls never have to worry about being mistreated and the scientists can gain all the benefits of close intimate human contact, without all the distractions from their important work. All I have to do now is submit a business plan for;
Her Majesty's Royal Society of Scientist's Brothels. Where the only clothes worn inside its walls are labcoats and the only bubbling test-tubes... No, I'm gonna stop there!
