Chemistry in Action
Chemistry in Action was another series produced and directed by Jack Smith (of Experiment fame)
Though not quite as 'Down to Earth' as Experiment,
this series does show in 20 minutes what would probably require an hour these days.
This programme shows the quarrying and processing of Limestone,
a form of calcium carbonate made from the skeletons of billions of tiny sea creatures
laid down at the bottom of ancient seas over two hundred million years ago.
After quarrying it is fed through gigantic crushers to break up the bigger boulders,
and then washed to remove particles of clay, before going on to be used as road stone amongst other things.
