This week's programme in the series on Man and Science Today.

Tonight's Horizon, which began as an enquiry into the evidence for Continental Drift, has ended up telling the story of a revolution in geology which has turned the earth sciences upside down.

When the programme was first transmitted in April 1970, it stimulated a considerable amount of correspondence and interest. The Guardian said it was 'wholly fascinating', and Virginia Ironside in the Daily Mail found that the experts in the programme were 'sizzling with excitement about a theory that only a few years ago was being pooh-poohed.

Many a doodling schoolboy has noticed that South America nearly fits under the bulge of West Africa and that the two could have split apart, but within the last few years scientists have discovered that all the world's land masses are involved in a global merry-go-round. Where they split apart earthquakes and volcanoes occur, and where they collide great mountain ranges have been pushed up from the surrounding ocean.

This programme tells the whole fascinating story of the earth's waltzing continents.
