Normally Ned Potter, at ABC, has an inside track on the latest footage from National Geographic. Recently he has filed stories on their footage of triplets in the womb and their collaboration with Quest Network's global study of cultures that foster longevity. Sure enough, when National Geographic archeologists uncovered the remains of a village that was linked to England's Stonehenge complex, Potter prepared a report--but anchor Gibson told us it would not be broadcast; it is only available online.
The broadcast honors went to Lester Holt, who filed NBC's closer from England. He told us that the villagers who built Stonehenge lived high on the hog--there were plenty of animal bones from a meat diet. A two-mile 4,600-year-old avenue from the village of Durrington Walls to Stonehenge has been excavated, "perhaps the oldest roadway in Europe." The stone circle is thought to have been used for midwinter funeral ceremonies.
