Attenborough joins forces with other scientists working to better understand the incredible journey of the evolution of the Pterosaurs. The story unfolds in such stunning locations as New Mexico, the Jurassic Coast of Lyme Regis in Britain, an ancient pterosaur landing site in Southern France, and a fossil pit in Germany where near perfect Pterosaur specimens have been uncovered.
