Where _Walking With Dinosaurs (1999) (TV)_ took us through the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous Eras, Walking With Prehistoric Beasts examines the various Cenozoic eras, when mammals began to dominate after the massive late Cretaceous extinction that killed 65% of life on Earth, including the dinosaurs.

It is not unusual for the narrator to refer to the different kinds of animals not by their proper genus or species names, but rather with broader terms (like the name of the group they belonged to), making it hard to identify the animals more precisely. For example, the giant rhinoceros Paraceratherium is simply called an "indricothere", and there is also the bizarre plant-eater Embolotherium, which is gets to be named "brontothere". This is true for all the "Walking with..." series, but the naming method began to get prominent in this show. However it also produced several dubbing mistakes for other countries; some dubs did not translate these animal names at all, others added one or two extra letters to the end of the names, while some translations tried to use more exact names for some of the animals, mostly ending up with incorrect or out-of-use terms - this can be forgivable, since in some cases, like with the aforementioned Paraceratherium, there are a handful of different scientific names that can be used.

We have since built museums to celebrate the past, and spend decades studying prehistoric lives. And if all this has taught us anything, it is this: no species lasts forever.

In terms of the age of our planet and in relation to 'Walking with Dinosaurs' set in Earth's distant past, 'Walking With Prehistoric Beasts' happened only last week so to speak. The series starts off with one of the first Mammals then finishing with Humans and the Giant Mammoths, with carnivorous Wolf like animals who's nearest modern day relative are Sheep! this is one big freak show from start to finish.
'Walking With Prehistoric Beasts' tells the story of how Mammals have come to dominate this planet we call home, with each part a different story about an individual, family or group and how they survive and cope in the harsh new Post-Dino world
If you enjoyed 'Walking with Dinosaurs' (it's predecessor) you're love this, the narration, models, FX & CGI have all improved greatly, with some of the `Beasts' in parts even interacting with the camera that is suppose to be filming them.
Great viewing for young and old
