Using the latest groundbreaking paleontological discoveries and cutting edge technology combined with comparative studies of modern animals, we redefine this iconic dinosaur. We debunk centuries of inaccuracy and misrepresentation fuelled by films and gaps in our scientific understanding.
The journey spans the globe. Starting in the badlands of Montana, a T.rex is pulled from the rocks for the first time in sixty six million years. In the swamps of Alabama Dr. Gregory Erickson measures the bite of an alligator to unlock the mysteries of the infamous T.rex bite. Using drone technology, prehistoric trackways in Texas are deciphered providing vital clues about the way T.rex moved and how fast. In Ohio CT scanners provide a portal into the mind of the formidable creature that sheds light on the intelligence, senses and even social side. And in a music studio in Berlin, sounds from the natural world are altered according to the latest research, to give T. rex a voice.
The Hollywood myths are finally stripped away to uncover the astonishing truth about an animal we all thought we knew and loved. Utilising the latest CGI wizardry, the most scientifically accurate T. rex is digitally reconstructed from the bones up for viewers to witness in all its glory.
