The One Show cancelled tonight in huge schedule shake up leaving viewers furious

THE One Show has been cancelled this evening to make way for a David Attenborough documentary.

Viewers were shocked to discover that Dinosaurs: The Final Day with David Attenborough was airing instead of the popular evening TV show.

The documentary started at 6.30pm on BBC One meaning there was no room for the Alex Jones fronted programme, which normally starts at 7pm.

The One show will be returning to TV on Wednesday 20th April following the Easter weekend.

Dinosaurs: The Final Day with David Attenborough sees Tyrannosaurus Rexs get “more rounded treatment” after historically being thought of as terrifying.

Through the magic of CGI, the documentary features host Sir David Attenborough coming face to face with a gentler version of the dreaded T-Rex.

Director Matthew Thompson said: “Predators often get a bad rap on TV, as they’re shown as eating machines — as if that’s all they really do.

“We want to show different sides to the creatures and come up with some storylines that are a little bit different and a little bit gentler.”

Executive producer Helen Thomas also wanted to counteract the image of the dinosaurs by showing how mundane their lives were when they weren’t ripping each others’ throats out.

She said: “Predators tend to just fight all the time and we wanted to show them pooing.”

In the 90-minute special Sir David showcases the findings of a team of paleontologists.

They were able to re-examine the final moments before the dinosaurs were wiped out by an asteroid hitting Earth 66million years ago.

The team has shed new light on the cataclysm through the first discovery in a prehistoric graveyard of the fossilised remains of a dinosaur that was killed directly by the impact.

They have also unearthed a fragment of the destructive meteor perfectly preserved in amber — just like the dinosaur blood-carrying mosquito which featured in Jurassic Park.
