Nigel Marven travels back in time to rescue exotic creatures on the brink of extinction. CGI is used to create animals no longer seen on earth, from woolly mammoths, and T Rex, to dinosaur-eating crocodiles.

The show depicts the Asian troodontid dinosaur Mei long as an about 2 meter long, scale-covered, "generic" troodontid. Its original fossil was at first thought to have been a juvenile, due to its long, slender legs and small size, so the show increased its stature to adult size. We now know that Mei long was indeed only about half a meter long as an adult, it had very long legs, and was covered in feathers, making it look like a small bird. See more
The CGI version of the Microraptor has its primary feathers incorrectly attach to the wrist, a very amateurish mistake. However when the physical Microraptor puppet is shown, it correctly has its primaries growing out of its middle finger. See more
