Tamar Bennett Margrave - Fragments of Prehistoric Past - Eden Shorts 2015

Duration: 01:10


Alongside some innovative editing techniques, Tamar expertly connects nature's prehistory to the modern day.

The chalk from which the headland at Flamborough is formed is composed mostly of millions of prehistoric plankton that are only ten thousandths of a millimetre in diameter. When the chalk weathers it creates ledges, which are ideal nest sites for thousands of seabirds, safe from mammalian predators.

Tamar hopes that her film will provide an "insight into the story of this inspiring landscape, from its Jurassic origins and formation through to the present day".
