This new four-part science series uncovers the anatomical secrets of some of the animal kingdom’s most extraordinary species. Made in association with the Royal Veterinary College , Inside Nature’s Giants uses dissection, CGI and wildlife photography to show, from the inside out, how millions of years of evolution have enabled four species – the elephant, whale, crocodile and giraffe – to thrive in their environmental niches. Veterinary scientist Mark Evans acts as guide, while evolutionary biologist Professor Richard Dawkins traces the animals’ places on the tree of life. The first programme looks at how evolution has overcome the challenges of being as big as an elephant.
