Chris Packham looks at history’s most famous dinosaur – a beast we actually know rather little about.

Much of this show is speculation, as we have so little knowledge to go on. We have the bones, but we don’t know what colour the skin of a Tyrannosaurs rex was, and much of our views on how much a killer it was comes from Hollywood films. For all we know it could have been a scavenger.

The Real T Rex with Chris Packham is on BBC Two at 21.00.
