This is a documentary you can watch again and again, both because of its informative content as for its beautiful sense of humor. It was shown only once on BBC last year and I don't know why they don't put it out again, or at least on DVD. It basically traces the history of T-Rex from 1905 (the documentary celebrates the 100th anniversary of the discovery) until now with particular attention to the dinosaur's development as a media star. There are interviews with paleontologists, docudrama reconstructions and even interviews with co-stars (King Kong and the girl from the first Jurassic Park movie), all done with a wry sense of humor. It's also short enough (about one hour). It is something the whole family will enjoy and is perfect for the 7-9 year old boy/girl who obsesses about dinosaurs.
