Storyline

Professor Challenger reveals the existence of a remote plateau in the Amazon jungle where dinosaurs have survived. He returns there leading an expedition. Not only are dinosaurs found and confronted, but also highly evolved apes, Amazonian Indians who think Challenger a god, and, on the way, the attractive orphaned niece of a lonely missionary. Theology intervenes in this exercise in vindicating Darwin and the missionary twice attempts to sabotage the mission. After much excitement, love is found in unexpected places, and, confronted by civilization, as represented by the Royal Society in London, Challenger changes his story.

Trivia

Professor Challenger talks to Summerlee about his life as a young boy, that he was raised by his parents under the Bible. Then as he became more interested in Science, his father had "lost" him. This is similar to his creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and his own religious experiences. He too, was a scientist that was raised Catholic and became more supportive of Spiritualism. See more »

Quotes

Prof. George Challenger: You've been in a few scrapes, Roxton. Have you ever been in a situation worse than this?
Lord John Phillip Roxton: Uh, well, let me see. No. No, I think I can quite safely say this is the least promising set-up I've ever encountered.
Prof. George Challenger: Oh.
Lord John Phillip Roxton: We have no way down off the plateau, and thanks to your insistence on secrecy, the only person who even has a clue where we are is a religious lunatic who seems quite happy to let us die here.
Prof. George Challenger: Well, there's no need to be so cheerful about it.

Good show but watch out for misleading copy.
6 November 2002 | by (Cocoa, Florida) – See all my reviews

The DVD of the miniseries brings it into better focus, minus commercial interruptions, and it is definitely one of the better adaptations of this old warhorse. But beware the DVD copy! It claims the movie runs 200 minutes. It doesn't (160 mins.). It claims to be an "exclusive widescreen version" (1:78 to 1). It isn't. It's full screen. The second disc claims 125 minutes of material. Actually it's less than 120 with a 90 minute documentary and a 20 minute "behind the scenes feature. Nevertheless, what you DO get is quite enjoyable. One wonders why they had to promise so much more.
