What's on Festival Programme Steve Brusatte - The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs. 66 million years ago dinosaurs were wiped from the face of the earth. Today a new generation of dinosaur hunters are piecing together the story of how the dinosaurs created an empire that lasted for around 150 million years. Steve Brusatte, one of the world’s leading palaeontologists and a consultant on TV shows such as Walking with Dinosaurs and T.Rex Autopsy, follows these magnificent creatures from the Triassic period, through the Jurassic, to their final days and offers thrilling accounts of the remarkable discoveries he has made, including human-sized tyrannosaurs, feathered raptors and carnivores even larger than the T.Rex.
