Last night the BBC aired a docummentary called 'Attenborough and the Giant Dinosaur' in which Sir David Attenborough investigates the discovery of a giant dinosaur find in Argentina. In the film, Professor Hutchinson from the RVC Structure & Motion team and other palaeontologists study the fossils along with comparative anatomy experts, and look at what the bones reveal about the lives of these dinosaurs with the help of 3D scanning, CGI visuals and animation. If you are able to access BBC iPlayer you can watch the film for the next 30 days for free at this link:
