Trivia

The picture of the series' DVD release has been cropped incorrectly, so the screen shows a bit more than the creators intended. In many shots, there are black or sometimes grey lines on the sides of the screen, revealing where the live-action footage ends. At times, the CGI animals or other visual elements are still visible over these dark areas, and other times, the animals "end" some distance away from the screen's edge. Also, in some shots you can clearly see where the animal puppets used for closeups end, and the wires and parts of the puppeteers are also visible. See more »

Goofs

Dromaeosaurids (commonly known as "raptors") like Utahraptor and Dromaeosaurus were featured with no feathers, however when this show was made, the theory that they might have been feathered had already been crafted, and even confirmed by actual fossil evidence. See more »

User Reviews

Brilliantly produced documentary
4 October 2002 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

This BBC produced series (6 Hrs worth) won many emmy awards and is an absolute must for any dinosaur aficionado. The series is approached as if it were a modern day nature film. The dinosaur effects put most movies to shame. I cannot recommend it enough.
