Tim Haines originally didn't want to produce a documentary about dinosaurs, but one about ancient mammals. BBC would however only fund a project about dinosaurs since they thought it would be more successful. After the show did indeed become a success, Haines and the crew were free to make a show about mammals: Walking with Prehistoric Beasts (2001). See more »
A recurring animation error throughout all of the episodes is how the body parts and muscles of the CG animals clip through each other while moving. Wrinkles and skin patterns appear and disappear, and sometimes strange bulges stick out of the animals, seemingly moving independently from the surrounding flesh. This kind of error is perhaps the most noticeable on the shoulder region of the Diplodocus, as the shoulder muscles and the upper part of their front legs "merge" and separate repeatedly at each step.

Great "documentary" of how scientist's believed dinosaurs behaved, captured with some of the most spectacular CGI since "Jurassic Park". Done completely seriously, like a prehistoric episode of "Nation Geographic". Grabs your attention from the first frame and never lets go. My favorite part was when the Diplodocus fights off the Allosauros.
10 stars. This is what science is all about.
