Video for:
Time-line in your own backyard
Toilet roll of time

Video produced by Claire L Evans for Darwin 200.

By condensing 4.6 billion years of history into 60 seconds, the video is a self-contained timepiece. Like a specialized clock, it gives a sense of perspective. Everything from the formation of the Earth, to the Cambrian Explosion, to the evolution of mice and squirrels is proportionate to everything else, displaying humankind as a blip, almost indiscernible in the layered course of history
