Welcome to When Dinosaurs Roamed the Earth podcast series by Cambridge For Kids. This tenth episode looks at the question Could We Bring Back Dinosaurs? Recent advances in science have made the idea of cloning dinosaurs more likely sometime in the future. The oldest DNA found intact was from around one million years ago. For dinosaurs, we would need to go back 66 million years. The question is, would a sample survive? In this episode, you will learn about DNA - the building blocks of life. What animals could we bring back today? How the movie Jurassic Park got the science wrong. And how scientists could clone dinosaurs in the future.
