Sir David Attenborough impresses once again as he uncovers a 200 million-year-old fossil high in the cliffs of Dorset, England. After closer inspection it’s believed to be the bones of an ichthyosaur, a giant sea dragon, which needs to be exhumed before the winter storms hit. With the help of CGI, Sir David recreates what it looked like back then, and also uncovers some of the startling similarities it shares with the animals we know today. y
