History, Science Documentary hosted by Ellie Harrison and Dean Lomax, published by ITV in 2015 - English narration
Dinosaurs! The very word conjures up fascination and intrigue with millions of us dreaming of becoming a palaeontologist when we were younger. Yet few of us realise that over 50 different dinosaur species have been found in Britain.
Dinosaur Britain tells the amazing story of many of the dinosaurs that once roamed our country revealing how they hunted, what they ate and how they died from the evidence revealed from their bones.
Presenter Ellie Harrison, who fell in love with dinosaurs as a child, teams up with 25?year?old Dean Lomax, one of Britain's youngest palaeontologists, to bring Dinosaur Britain to life as never before. Ellie and Dean come 'face to face' with incredible CGI dinosaurs against the backdrop of some of Britain's most famous landmarks - including Big Ben and Stonehenge.
Britain has yielded one of the best dinosaur fossil records anywhere in the world. Giant Sauropods measuring over 20 metres - the length of two double decker buses - once lived throughout Britain.
Raptors, fast moving and carnivorous pack?hunters, were discovered in Dorset - along with three types of Tyrannosaur. Huge teeth from the Iguanodon were discovered in Sussex while stegosaurs, with armoured plates positioned along their back, lived in Swindon and Peterborough.
From the world's ?rst dinosaur discovery in Stones?eld, Oxfordshire in 1824 to the most recent discovery - a new dinosaur species discovered in Wales in 2014 - Dinosaur Britain features the most fascinating dinosaur ?nds across Britain to tell an enthralling story 200 million years in the making.
1) Part 1
Part one of two. Ellie Harrison teams up with palaeontologist Dean Lomax to investigate the lives of the dinosaurs that once roamed the nation, revealing how they hunted, what they ate and how they died, with the pair encountering CGI dinosaurs against the backdrop of some of Britain's most famous landmarks. In the first of two parts, they discover how the prehistoric reptiles were first identified as an entirely new species after a find just north of Oxford and inspect a specimen from a predator that hunted a few miles south of Stonehenge.
2) Part 2
Part two of two. Ellie Harrison and palaeontologist Dean Lomax investigate the lives of the dinosaurs that once roamed the nation, revealing how they hunted, what they ate and how they died, with the pair encountering CGI dinosaurs against the backdrop of some of Britain's most famous landmarks. They examine a large bone that belonged to a sauropod, which was one of the world's largest dinosaurs, and may have been up to 65 feet long and weighed 40 tonnes. Ellie visits the Isle of Wight to find out about a discovery that could provide evidence of a dinosaur batte taking place, and at the National Museum of Wales she hears about the discovery of a dinosaur species that is so new it has still to be been named.
