Who knew it was possible for David Attenborough to exist beyond the BBC? Apparently he can and he will this Christmas day as he unveils his much-anticipated docu-film Flying Monsters for the Sky 3D channel. The 1 hour production, which has spent 9 months in the making, follows the evolution of the pterosaurs. To those who don’t have a subscription to Prehistoric Times, this ‘monster’ is better known as the pterodactyl. In the defense of the uninformed, the pterosaurs had very limited screen time in  Jurassic Park.

Flying Monsters is the first natural history documentary to be commissioned by Sky 3D and has been plugged as an example of ‘landmark television’. Although the pterosaurs’ lifespan may seem an obscure subject matter, the well paced narrative and superb use of the technology manage to keep you captivated. Plus, it is voiced by the pacifying tones of David Attenborough, what more could you want? »
