We're in a golden age of discovery - and the fossils coming to light now show that dinosaurs were stranger, bigger, scarier and more diverse than we ever imagined.

From outback Australia to the Gobi Desert and the savannah of Madagascar, award-winning science writer John Pickrell sets out on a world tour of new discoveries and meets the fossil hunters leading the charge.

Discover the dwarf dinosaurs unearthed by an eccentric Transylvanian baron; an aquatic, crocodile-snouted carnivore bigger than T Rex; the Chinese dinosaur with wings like a bat; and a Patagonian sauropod that was so enormous it weighed more than two commercial jet airliners!

Why did dinosaurs grow so huge? Did they all have feathers? And what do sauropods have in common with 1950s vacuum cleaners?

Weird Dinosaurs examines the latest breakthroughs and new technologies that are radically transforming our understanding of the distant past.
