The One Show has been canceled by the BBC this evening to show a documentary by David Attenborough in its place.
BBC One viewers were shocked to discover that Dinosaurs: The Final Day with David Attenborough was lined up for Friday night’s popular evening show.
David Attenborough’s documentary begins at 6:30pm on BBC One and as a result The One Show has been dropped from its normal 7pm slot.
The show prepared by Alex Jones will return to BBC screens on Wednesday, April 20 following the Easter weekend.
Dinosaur: The Last Day with David Attenborough saw the Tyrannosaurus Rex get “fairer treatment” after historically considered a fearsome villain of prehistoric times.
In a special 90 minutes, Sir David showcases the findings of a team of paleontologists, examining the last moments before the dinosaurs were wiped out by an asteroid that hit Earth. 66 million years.
Sir David Attenborough says new evidence of the last days of dinosaurs on Earth has been discovered while filming his new BBC documentary.
An asteroid – known as Chicxulub – hit the planet some 66 million years ago and wiped out the dinosaurs and now the fossil of one of the dinosaurs is believed to have been killed by the giant comet detected.

The preserved dinosaur foot was discovered while the 95-year-old natural historian and his crew explored the Tanis fossil site in North Dakota.
They were there for three years filming Dinosaurs: The Final Day, which included the investigation of the devastated asteroid.
A rock fragment of the meteorite was found in a fish fossil at the excavation site.
Attenborough and his team were given exclusive access and he said: “The film tells the story of the last day dinosaurs lived on Earth – and details every minute of that day.
“We tend to think that the end of a (geological) period lasts for decades, if not centuries, and indeed the end of a period can vary across around the world in different regions.”
However, he said that what was “remarkable” about the subject was that “it was an amazingly huge worldwide event.”
The One Show will return to BBC One screens next week.
