Lost Worlds, Vanished Lives is a four-part BBC documentary series about the discovery of fossils. It was written and presented by David Attenborough.
With the help of expert palaeontologists, fossil hunters and (for the time) modern animation techniques, Attenborough attempts to show how life evolved in Earth's distant past. To do so, he travels the globe to visit the world's most famous fossil sites.
