What is time? Why does our perception of it change so much?

We perceive time in terms of seconds – the length of a heartbeat. We can’t even imagine events that unfold over several days, like a growing plant, without time-lapse photography, but “Time Limits” uses a combination of amazing new camera techniques, dramatic computer animation and the latest scientific advances to give a totally new view of our world and our universe. Specially developed motion-control time-lapse photography will bring to life the slow motion world of plants. We will journey into shorter timescales to find elements that exist for less than a millionth of a second, or elementary particles that flash into existence for less than a billionth of a second.
