"The World of the Dinosaurs" is the 14th installment in the Symphony of Science series; it investigates their habits, extinction, and how we learn about them. Featuring Alice Roberts, Bill Nye, Nigel Marvin, Dallas Campbell and more. Materials used in the creation of this video are from:

Jack Horner's 2011 TED Talk
Special thanks to everybody who's donated to keep the project alive and to those who helped track down the materials used in this video.
*Please note: not every animal depicted in the video is a dinosaur; some are contemporary animals that look like dinosaurs (the flying/swimming ones).
[Dr. Alice Roberts]
How can we start to come close to animals that lived hundreds of millions of years ago?
Dinosaurs weren't just giant lizards
But a truly unique kind of reptile
For more than 150 million years
In amazing shapes and sizes
Very few left evidence of their existence
And those bones never cease to fascinate us
The more we find
The more complete our understanding
The world of the dinosaurs
There are always new discoveries out there
Waiting to be found
Tyrannosaurus, the largest flesh eater
The world has ever seen
Dinosaurs - all the dinosaurs-
Followed a well trod trail to oblivion
Rock layers span the age of dinosaurs
The deeper the layer, the older the rock
At the top - rock from the Cretaceous
Below that, the Jurassic
And near the bottom, red Triassic badlands
When dinosaurs first appeared
65 million years ago
A meteorite smashed into the Earth
Hurtling toward our planet
At a hundred thousand kilometers a second
**correction: per hour, not second!
If we'd never found their bones,
We wouldn't ever have known
These ancient animals ever existed
