A fascinating documentary, presented by David Attenborough, about the discovery of the world’s largest-known dinosaur. A fascinating documentary, presented by David Attenborough, about the discovery of the world’s largest-known dinosaur. In 2014, a shepherd spotted the tip of a gigantic fossil bone sticking out of a rock in La Flecha Farm in the Chubut Province in the Argentinian desert. Palaeontologists soon uncovered a massive 2.4m long (femur) thigh bone, the largest ever found. These all belong to a new species of the giant plant-eating titanosaur. Filmed over two years, the documentary follows the twists and turns of this forensic investigation. David Attenborough witnesses the uncovering and examination of these fossils and the construction of the complete skeleton. And using state-of-the-art graphics, the film also reveals the internal secrets of this dinosaur and what it means to be a giant. More
