[edit] Information

Could a pterodactyl as large as a light aircraft have flown? Did millipedes once grow to six feet long? How did insects become preserved in amber for over 50 million years? All these questions and more are answered through the study of fossils. In his journeys to the most famous fossil sites in the world, Sir David Attenborough discovers a pre-historic world teeming with life and full of enticing clues as to how life evolved. They reveal how dinosaurs hunted, lived in groups and cared for their young. And they offer glimpses of the most bizarre creatures that ever lived, such as tiny horses and an animal that is half bird and half reptile. With the help of expert palaeontologists, fossil enthusiasts from around the world and sophisticated modelling. Lost Worlds, Vanished Lives breathes life into Earth's distant past.

[edit] Magic in the Rocks

A picture of prehistoric life emerges, as Sir Attenborough unearths several major clues in the form of fossilised remains that were undiscovered for millennia.

[edit] Putting Flesh on Bone

Using the latest evidence, scientists reconstruct a pterodactyl in the form of a model aircraft — to see if such a beast could indeed have flown.

[edit] Dinosaur

Sir David Attenborough visits several museums of natural history. With the aid of dinosaur skeletons, he demonstrates how they existed in real life, and speculates about the reasons for their sudden demise.

[edit] The Rare Glimpses

Four famous locations that have the most suitable conditions for fossilisation are explored. Not only are common animals preserved, but also plants and other, seldom-seen creatures.
