DOUBLE BILL: Animated Life: The Living Fossil Fish | Attenborough and the Giant Dinosaur LIMITED CAPACITY
Limited Capacity seats available

David Attenborough tells the story of the discovery and reconstruction in Argentina of the world’s largest known dinosaur, a brand new species of giant plant-eating titanosaur. Measuring 37m long — close to four London buses put end to end, and weighing 70 metric tons — it now holds the record as the biggest animal ever to walk the earth. Filmed over two years, this documentary follows the twists and turns of this forensic investigation. Attenborough witnesses the uncovering and examination of these stupendous fossils and the dramatic construction of the complete skeleton. And using state-of-the-art graphics, the film also reveals the internal secrets of this dinosaur and what it means to be a giant.

The screening will be preceded by the showing of Animated Life: The Living Fossil Fish, a short film telling the story of the bizarre-looking coelacanth. With its fleshy, lobed fins and its tough armored scales, the coelacanth doesn't look like any other fish that exists today and has remained virtually unchanged for hundreds of millions of years — earning it the description of a "living fossil".
