T. Rex was not what we were taught

Recommend “The Real T Rex with Chris Packham”, on BBC2 tv.
Main point – many dinosaurs were much more like birds that we’ve previously imagined.
He announced the making of this programme at the opening of the Chinasaurs exhibition (at Wollaton Hall in June), explaining that our popular perceptions of dinosaurs were wrong.

I must have remembered what he told me was wrong cos I’ve since being telling people the T. Rex was covered in feathers and only had a high-pitched squeak.
Perhaps they’ve learnt more since.
I told hom the public might not accept a new T. Rex.  He told me quite clearly – it was the truth!
