It seems to me that since they are running they will now be covering one screen every newpix where they used to take 3-5 or more if they stopped to do something.

2 minute BBC video on when the Mediterranean sea dried up 6 million years ago. Only took 2000 years to dry up so that would put the event that caused it in the 1000 years ago kind of range.
