Barney Harwood presents the children's magazine. He meets writers inspired by the Grant Museum in London, an amazing zoology museum housing over 62,000 species and an incredible number of extinct creatures.
Curator Mark Carnell, an expert on all aspects of palaeontology, helped the authors of Deeper, Brian Williams and Roderick Gordon, create creatures based largely on scientific reality. In particular, he identified a prehistoric creature called the Anomolocaris, which was the largest animal on Earth 525 million years ago.
The team see a Dodo skeleton and a Tasmanian Wolf that has been extinct since 1936. They also meet the three writers known as The Beastly Boys, authors of An Awfully Beastly Business.
