Vanished for 65 million years, dinosaurs are making a comeback, both in the lab and in the public imagination. Combining pop culture with hard science, DINOSAURS: INSIDE AND OUT takes viewers on a fast-paced, fun and enlightening tour of what we know about dinosaurs, and what we’re just finding out about how they lived. This series of four, one-hour programs moves from paleontologists working to discover fossils in the field, to the reconstruction of dinosaurs and their habitats, and even into the shopping mall to see how dinosaurs capture our imaginations today.

Find out how fleet-footed raptors used their razor-like claws to gut luckless prey, and why the legendary Tyrannosaurus Rex may not have been the feared attacker as was once thought.
