How do you tame wildness? 

For hundreds of thousand of years our ancestors existed in a world where they depended on wild plants and animals. They were hunter-gatherers - consummate survival experts, but taking the world as they found it. 

Then a revolution happened: we started to domesticate wild species and they became crucial to our own survival and success.   Join Alice Roberts as she delves into archaeology, history and genetics to reveal the amazing stories of the species that became our allies.   From dogs, cattle and horses to wheat, potatoes and apples, find out how taming all these species has left its mark on them - and us.

Did dinosaurs eat their own families?

Was every Tyrannosaur a fearsome carnivore?

Why did Allosaurus headbutt its prey to death?

Come and test your knowledge against Ben Garrod (the TV scientist in the BBC’s ‘Attenborough and the Giant Dinosaur‘).   With the help of TV film footage and photos of his own palaeontological dinosaur digs, he will tell you everything you ever wanted to know about dinosaurs - and more.   

This is an interactive show where children will be given the chance to ask questions and show off their dinosaur knowledge to the audience.   Ben's assistant will roam the auditorium with a microphone and take questions from as many children as possible. Using film footage from the BBC's 'Planet Dinosaur', Ben will talk about the deadliest predators that ever roamed the planet and the ones that, 65 million years ago, would have walked right where they are sitting now.
