Channel 4’s new factual series ‘Walking Through Time’ premiering on 24th September, 8pm.
This series follows Dr Tori Herridge of the Natural History Museum out into the landscapes of Britain, investigating mysteries from the deep past. The opening episode follows Tori as she searches North West Scotland for the first ever asteroid impact crater in the UK, and one of the biggest known across the globe. If she finds it, it will not only be one of the world’s biggest impacts, it will be the only asteroid crater found on mainland Britain.
Dr Tori Herridge is a palaeobiologist at the Natural History Museum specialising in fossil elephants particularly those which lived in Europe during the Ice Age. Her research focuses on the evolution of the extinct species of dwarf elephants on Mediterranean islands. She has featured in many TV programs and is currently in the process of writing her first book.
She is also the co-founder of TrowelBlazers and organisation dedicated to telling the stories of pioneering women in palaeontology, geology and archaeology, addressing gender disparity in these fields.
