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.Written by

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 »

This is a superb TVM based on the story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. A fine cast support the absorbing story line. The special effects are as magnificent as in Walking With Beasts' - but are not overplayed - they are simply a part of the story. Brilliant, and well worth watching.
