Someone else brought this to my attention on another forum. This is an incredible documentary looking at how it's possible that an animal weighing 500 kilos can run so fast on such thin legs. It does contain a dissection and it might not be available in Britain in which case you can watch it on 4oD (channel 4 on demand).

Just thought I'd share :)

If this is the one I'm thinking of, this aired a few years ago, and was also available online for some time.

Likely, I couldn't watch it back then (despite living in Britain and this is a British channel) anywhere but now I'm able to find it on the channel' website, slightly strange.
