Summary This documentary explores why Tyrannosaurus Rex is the scariest, meanest, most bewitching dinosaur of them all. Children have always been captivated by the sheer savagery of the teeth, experts have marvelled at the force of its bite - ten times more powerful than anything we know today and moviemakers made millions out of the terror it inspired. But could our picture of this monster be completely wrong? The program looks at T Rex's reputation and puts the theory forward that this beast from the past was in fact a slow lumbering creature, with hideously bad breath, that couldn't get anywhere close to catching a Triceratops. Some experts even pose the theory that Tyrannosaurus Rex was really a scavenger that lived off the scraps left by others and that it was, in fact, a wimp. The documentary features state of the art graphics and interviews with T Rex experts from around the world. (From the UK, in English)
