Abstract:

The Natural History Museum in London is undertaking the biggest challenge in its 130-year history. Dippy, the museum's iconic dinosaur, has taken centre stage for decades - but this venerable beast is not even a real fossil. Now, Dippy has been taken down, to be replaced by a 25-metre blue whale - a real animal skeleton, the largest animal ever to have lived on Earth. Horizon goes behind the scenes to follow this super-sized challenge. How do you move the biggest skeleton on the planet? This is an engineering challenge on a scale that no-one at the museum has faced before: a 21st century challenge in one of the oldest museums in the world.
