Dino Gangs

Dino Gangs is a two-hour documentary looking to answer the ultimate question about dinosaurs: did deadly Tyrannosaurs hunt in gangs?


Since they were discovered, Tyrannosaurs have been thought of as one of the most savage killers ever to walk the earth. But world Tyrannosaur expert, Dr Phil Currie, believes we don’t know this creature at all. He is convinced they were more intelligent and far more dangerous than anyone could have imagined.

To prove his theory he embarks on a quest that takes him to the dinosaur graveyards of the Gobi desert, the kingdom of the Komodo dragons, and the wilds of the African Kalahari. Along the way he enlists cutting edge technology to analyse Tyrannosaur fossils, discover how they developed, how big their brains were and whether they had the intelligence and the finely tuned senses to hunt in an organised pack.

By studying modern day animals with similarities to Tyrannosaurs, Dr.Currie reveals some extraordinary insights into a world that vanished 65 million years ago. A world in which Tyrannosaurus was king. What he discovers will change the way we see these perfect killers and even raise questions about our own evolution.

Combining stunning CGI with brand new science, DINO GANGS reveals the truth about an animal as ruthless as a Komodo dragon, as fast as the fastest two legged animal on earth, and as cunning as the king of the jungle – but 40 foot long, 13 feet tall, and weighing in at 6 tons!
