David Attenborough's Natural History Museum Alive is a 2014 documentary. Written and presented by David Attenborough, it aired on New Years Day 2014.[1]

The documentary was filmed at the Natural History Museum, London, and uses CGI imagery to bring to life several of the extinct animal skeletons in the museum, including Archaeopteryx, the Moa Ratite bird (Dinornis) and Haast's eagle (Harpagornis moorei; lit. "grappling hook bird"), Gigantopithecus (presented as more human than ponginae), Glossotherium, Ichthyosaurus and Dippy, a replica of a famous Diplodocus skeleton.

The documentary was well-received, and won a TV BAFTA in the specialist factual category.[2] A companion book for the documentary was released under the same name.
