Synopsis

Documentary examining whether the idea on which the feature film JURASSIC PARK is based, the genetic re-creation of dinosaurs, could ever come true. Is it possible to recreate a dinosaur, or should we let sleeping beasts lie? The programme follows each scientific step from finding the DNA code of the tyrannosaurus rex to the possibility of creating a fail-safe park for the prehistoric beasts. Contributors include palaeontologists Jim Horner and Jim Kirkland. The programme includes footage from the Steven Spielberg film, and goes behind the scenes to find out more about the special effects it uses.
