The TAC (torsion anomalous conjecture) states that for an irreducible variety V embedded transversaly in an abelian variety A there are only finitely many maximal V-torsion anomalous varieties. It is well know that the TAC implies the Mordell-Lang conjecture. S. Checcole, F. Veneziano and myself were trying to prove some new cases of the TAC. In this process we realised that some methods could be made not only effective but even explicit. So we analysed the implication of this explicit methods on the Mordell Conjeture. Namely: can we make the Mordell Conjecture explicit for some new families of curves and so determine all the rational points on these curves? Of course we started with the easiest situation, that is curves in ExE for E an elliptic curve. We eventually could give some new families of curves of growing genus for which we can determine all the rational points. I will explain the difficulties and the ingredients of this result. I will then discuss the generalisations of the method and also its limits.
