Simon Conway Morris turns back the clock 65 million years to find out how the configuration of the continents has changed.
Watch the full third lecture of the series:

Simon Conway Morris gave the 1996 Christmas Lectures "The History Of Our Bones" about the important role fossils and bones play in helping us understand the past.

The third lecture "The great dyings: Life after death", where this clip is from, sees Simon exploring theories on what happened to the dinosaurs and other extinct groups of animals, and how life developed afterwards.
