Raising the Dinosaur Giant

 

Have scientists discovered the biggest animal to have ever walked the planet? Deep in a South American desert, a giant is being awakened after 101 million years of sleep. Paleontologists have discovered a giant femur – the largest dinosaur bone that has ever been unearthed. Another 200 bones from the same species have also been discovered. Sir David Attenborough guides us through the remarkable journey of waking the giant as it happens – connecting the dots, translating the paleo jargon and explaining the revelations using living examples, other dinosaur discoveries and CGI visuals.

THE MIND OF A CHEF
Hunger

 

Ever since 1999, when Chef Gabrielle Hamilton put canned sardines and Triscuits on the first menu of her tiny, 30-seat East Village restaurant, Prune, she has nonchalantly broken countless rules of the food world. Prune has always been an idiosyncratic restaurant, with no culinary mission other than to serve what Hamilton likes to eat in an environment in which she wants to eat. Hamilton won the James Beard Foundation’s Best Chef NYC in 2011 and is author of a best-selling memoir, Blood, Bones and Butter, which garnered a James Beard Award for Writing and Literature in 2012.

Animal Homes: The Nest

Bird nests come in all shapes and sizes, crafted from a diversity of materials, including fur, grasses, leaves, mosses, sticks and twigs, bones, wool, mud and spider silk. Quite a few contain man-made materials – twine, bits of wire, even plastic bags. Each is a work of art, built with just a beak! All over the world, birds in the wild arrive at diverse nesting grounds to collect, compete for, reject, steal and begin to build with carefully selected materials, crafting homes for the task of protecting their eggs and raising their young.
