Have we been getting the gigantic dinosaur all wrong?

Chris Packham has been obsessed with the Tyrannosaurus rex since he was a boy.

But he fell in love with a fantasy, because the images he saw in films of the mighty dinosaur were a complete fabrication. In this fascinating documentary, the naturalist is on a mission to set the record straight and find the real T rex.

He travels the world to meet international experts and, with their insights, plus the aid of trailblazing technology, he sets about creating the most accurate CGI representation of the T rex ever produced.

Chris makes some remarkable discoveries along the way, including that the powerful predator was covered in spiny feathers, didn’t roar and was actually quite social.
