They are using flash.
But you could do something similar with js.
Create your timeline graphics and place in a div with overflow auto - this will give you the scrolling.
jquery has a number of plugins that can do image zoom on mouse over
To change the content below then you just have to capture the image/text click

I have done a scrolling timeline before using the slider described here:

You can set the background image to be the timeline, then as each click moves it left or right the background moves to another time period.
