Primatologist and master skeleton builder Ben Garrod shares his unique passion for bones, revealing a fascinating world we never normally get to see.
In this 3-part series, Ben Garrod embarks on a very personal journey through the remarkable and surprising story of how a single, universal body plan - the skeleton, has shaped the animal kingdom.
There are over 62,000 species of vertebrate of every size and shape - from squirrels to sperm whales and aardvarks to anacondas. They may look very different on the outside, but on the inside they are based on the same skeletal blueprint.
Each skeleton differs in small, but critical ways and, in Ben??s hands, those differences can be decoded to reveal an animal's complete life story - not only how it moves, where it lives and what it eats, but also its entire evolutionary journey.
Secrets of Bones brings the remarkable world of bones to life in a unique way. By conducting fascinating experiments, meeting expert contributors, using integrated graphics and a wealth of archive from the BBC's Natural History Unit, Ben unlocks a fascinating and hidden world we never get to see.
Looking from the inside out, Ben shows how this simple blueprint made vertebrates the most versatile and dominant group of animals on earth.
