VIDEO REVIEW: WALKING WITH DINOSAURS

Imagine you could witness a prehistoric sunset – imagine you are watching insectivorous pterosaurs chase moths in the moist evening air and bull triceratops lock horns over a young female.  This is no longer a dream.

 

Walking with Dinosaurs makes that distant world as real and natural as images from today’s Serengeti.  Tracing the 160 million-year history of dinosaurs, from their first appearance to their abrupt demise, this series marks a watershed in television imagery.  Classic natural history techniques, leading edge computer technology and animatronics combined with the latest scientific findings, recreate the sights and sounds of an endlessly fascinating era.  Walking with Dinosaurs brings to life the mystery and excitement of the age when these reptiles roamed the planet.
