This DVD contains the first four episodes of this series, originally broadcast in 2009. This Bafta award-winning series gets under the skin of the largest animals on the planet. Most wildlife documentaries show how animals behave, but by exploring their anatomy, "Inside Nature's Giants" reveals how these creatures really work.

Veterinary scientist Mark Evans is joined by a team of experts in anatomy, evolution and behaviour to put some of the most popular and enigmatic large animals under the knife: an elephant, crocodile, whale and giraffe. Evolutionary biologist Professor Richard Dawkins will show how anatomy provides proof of natural selection, biologist Simon Watt looks at how the human body matches up, whilst Mark Evans shows the animals in action. All aided by enthusiastic, scalpel-wielding anatomist Joy Reidenberg, who loves nothing more than being knee deep in a dissection.

"Inside Nature's Giants" delves under the skin of these magnificent beasts to look at their unique anatomy and reveal the secrets of their evolutionary past. This is natural history as you've never seen it before--from the inside out.

[...] one of the most remarkable natural history shows I have seen [...] Watch it. It's amazing
