You can go back in time, but not forward. That is, if you pull the log
for a branch, SVN will follow the history back to where the branch was
created, and then the history of the source of the branch.

I.E. if you make branch B1 from trunk at rev 100 and make branch B2
from trunk at rev 150, svn log B1 will show you the history of
everything that's happened in B1, and then everything in trunk up
through rev 100. Changes to trunk after rev 100 will not be shown, nor
changes to B2. svn log B2 will show you the history of B2 since its
creation, then trunk's history up through rev 150, but nothing in B1.

TortoiseSVN includes a handy revision graph. Someone has probably
written something similar that's a standalone app.
