A leading biologist who helps present Channel 4’s Inside Nature’s Giants will this month be giving students at a Hampshire university an insight into dissections.

Simon Watt will be talking to biology students at Southampton University on January 29 about life behind the scenes during the filming of the programme and some of the science that did not make the final cut.

The last series, broadcast in 2012, saw biologists dissect a hippo, kangaroo and a baboon.
