Trivia

The show put forward the then-proposed idea that the ostrich-like dinosaurs were water-going filter-feeders like modern-day ducks. This theory isn't accepted anymore. See more »

Goofs

Even though the characters have a time machine, the need to act quickly to save prehistoric animals is brought up in several episodes. In one episode, it's even a plot point that they arrived too late to save some saber-toothed cat cubs, which makes no sense. See more »

My sister and I loved it
21 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Yes it is rather silly, but it does have a great concept. I was not expecting another Walking With Dinosaurs, which is one of the best documentaries I have ever watched in my life, but Preehistoric Park is a lot of fun. I really like David Jason, and while he has done better, he does a good job as narrator. Nigel Marvin is also really entertaining, he is very likable and clearly has a lot of enthusiasm for this. As well as being introduced to these wonderful dinosaurs, the special effects I thought were mind blowing, the T Rex especially was exceptionally well done. I also really liked the music. Overall, Prehistoric Park was silly but my sister and I learnt quite a lot and loved it all the same. 8/10 Bethany Cox
