An abandoned Victorian Sail factory becomes the stage for London’s Circulus, a circus company that mixes traditional and modern performing arts in found and forgotten spaces around the UK.

With tricking, hand-to-hand, free running, dancing, juggling, tumbling, aerial hoop, cyr wheel, banquine, breakdancing, hand balancing, trampoline and more we transformed this desolate yet decadent space into a thriving hub of movement and creativity.

Also: fireworks!

Travel a span of 160 years, from the world’s first dinosaur exhibition, based on the scientific findings of 1854, to a multi-million dollar exhibition that aims to be the most scientifically accurate representation of dinosaurs ever.

In this clip from BBC Earth, Dr Alice Roberts visits Dinosaur Court at London’s Crystal Palace and then talks with Luis Chiappe, curator and director of the Dinosaur Institute at the Natural History Museum in Los Angeles. He and his team are preparing a dinosaur exhibition that will not only showcase the facts that we know about dinosaurs, but will explain why we know them.

Watch more from the BBC and more videos about dinosaurs.
