The Long Count

There is suggestion that a Mayan prophecy predicted 21st December 2012 as the end of a 'Long Count' and the beginning of a cataclysm that will engulf us all. A journalist goes to Silbury Hill in Wiltshire to join a group who believe that the world will come to an end on the day of winter solstice - and that they are among those destined to be saved.
