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 »

Goofs

Near the beginning of the film, in the lobby of the Natural History Museum, the tail of the Diplodocus skeleton is raised up off the ground. The film is set in 1911, but that skeleton had a dragging tail until it was remounted in 1993. See more »

Quotes

Prof. George Challenger: [Professor Summerlee has just had a bitter argument with Reverend Kerr over evolution: Professor Challanger has kept silent and divulged that his parents were deeply religous] Professor Challenger: One day I went to my father and asked him for a microscope. I can still remember the sadness in his eyes; he knew he had lost me then. But without even knowing it he had given me an even greater gift. He taught me humility in the face of nature. I don't know if there is a god; but I know man is no ...

A pleasant surprise
28 December 2001 | by (Devon (though once of London)) – See all my reviews

Basically the Walking with Dinosaurs effects team working with BBC Drama.

I may have been full of the Christmas spirit(s) but this seemed to be the best BBC drama I've seen for a while and as far as I know quite faithful to the book. Characters more engaging than the animals (unheard of movies like this) and here's hoping Hoskins as Prof Challenger returns soon.
