This is a must see!
18 September 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

My whole family loved this series. My 8 year old daughter in particular; she has now told us that wants to be a vet *and* an archaeologist and "dig up bones like Nigel." It shows the fascination that this show holds for people; particularly children.

Yes, the animals are CGI for the most part, with the odd bit of animatronics, but even for those of us who have seen movies like 'Jurassic Park' this still seems more realistic; particularly with Nigel discussing the various creatures he sees. His educational technique is very good, as he obviously teaches without people feeling they're being bored with facts and figures.

We have the DVD now as well, which my daughter is in danger of wearing out. I only hope they make more of this brilliant show, as it was so good.
