Episode Summary

Digging for Dinosaurs

Tony Robinson and Phil Harding travelled to the Rocky Mountains in Montana, USA, for this special programme on dinosaurs and the 'dinosaur hunters' who discover and dig up their fossil remains.

The methods used by the dinosaur hunters turned out to be very similar to those employed by archaeologists. And although Phil found he was making more use of a hammer and chisel than his usual digger's trowel, there was much more with which he was familiar from archaeological excavations.

After joining a museum dig to excavate the bones of the T-Rex's ancestor, they uncover the big bucks tourist industry that dinosaur hunting has spawned in the US. Their journey culminates in a trip to the Badlands, where they help dinosaur hunter Jack Horner dig up the remains of a T-Rex.
