In the series Lost Worlds- Vanished Lives, noted writer Sir David Attenborough uses paleontological evidence to reconstruct the daily lives of dinosaurs and give viewers a sense of what life was like on Earth some millions of years ago. In this particular episode, RT 39:32, viewers see the excavation of one of the largest dinosaur skeletons ever unearthed and examine the techniques used to preserve these valuable specimens. Also, Attenborough offers viewers an up-close look at the frontiers of this science, showing how scientists use the evidence they have to reconstruct a model of this lost world.
