Dinosaurs at Dusk

Journey back in time in the digital dome through the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous geological periods. Join a father and his daughter Lucy, who share a fascination for all things that fly, on an adventure like no other. Navigating from continent to continent, exploring an Earth teeming with dinosaurs, they search for clues to the origins of flight. The film is followed by a presenter-led and interactive discussion on fossils, life on Earth, and the geological timeline.

Natural Selection

Travel with Charles Darwin on the HMS Beagle to the Galapagos Islands, where he was inspired to discover the astounding biological process of natural selection. From the comfort of Down House in Kent, Darwin himself describes the mechanism of natural selection with numerous beautiful examples and glorious 360˚ visuals. The film is followed by a presenter-led and interactive discussion illustrating modern-day examples of evolution.
