Originally airing in England in 1977, the haunting mini-series Children of the Stones takes place in an British village called Milbury, which is home to a Stone Henge-esque megalithic stone circle. It follows the strange adventures of astrophysicist Adam Brake (Gareth Thomas) and his son Matthew, as they explore the unique metaphysical properties and complex backstory that make Milbury unique. Originally built by ancient Druids, the highly magnetic and extremely powerful stone circle exists in a time rift, causing the same actions and events to manifest themselves over and over again - until the stones' time cycle can finally be completed. Noted for its chilling score and multi-faceted story, members of Children of the Stones' young target audience have often described it as a sophisticated introduction to magical realism, as well as a traumatizingly scary experience.
