Warning - contains explicit scenes of animal dissections.
Inside Nature's Giants dissects the largest animals on the planet to uncover their evolutionary secrets. Most wildlife documentaries tell you how an animal behaves, but by dissecting the animal and studying its anatomy we can we can see how an animal works.
Experts in comparative anatomy, evolution and behaviour put some of the most popular and enigmatic large animals under the knife. Veterinary scientist, Mark Evans, will interpret their findings, biologist Simon Watts tests the animals' physiology in the field and Richard Dawkins traces back the animals' place on the tree of life.
Veterinary scientist Mark Evans leads the team dissecting a 65ft, 60-ton whale that died off the Irish coast, to learn the cause of its fatality and understand its fascinating anatomy. As they begin their studies, New York-based anatomist Joy Reidenberg must get the beast off a beach before decomposition causes it to explode or the waves reclaim the body. Richard Dawkins explains the whale's evolution.
