Storyline

The story of human evolution is told through the stories of representative members of the various species leading up to modern homo sapiens. It is ongoing climate changes that force human ancestors to develop, one by one, the unique characteristics of the modern humans. Though earlier species were superbly successful in their environments they were unsustainable when the environment changes. Written by David Foss

Trivia

In Walking with Prehistoric Beasts (2001), the Australopithecus were portrayed via computer graphics and animatronic puppets because of their non-humanlike proportions. In this show, they are all actors wearing extensive makeup (minus the baby Australopithecus, which is of course a puppet). This method sacrificed anatomical accuracy for more expressive and diverse characters. See more »

Goofs

The program features many badly made composite shots. The ape-men playing with the presenter's jeep at times have a different hue than the surroundings, their movements are out of sync with the jeep as they make it rock, and they aren't reflected on the vehicle, whereas the presenter is.

Not quite walking with the beasties.
21 September 2004 | by messiercatSee all my reviews

Like a lot of people I was impressed with the previous "walking with" achievements. This one mostly uses real people and has a whole different feel to it. The acting is superb and you'll forget you're watching people in makeup and hairy suits. That said, there seems to be a constant problem with productions that portray early human ancestors. I guess there's a tendency to think ancient means crude and sloppy, and that's the way these beings are shown. Think brutish as in "Quest for Fire". Somehow I think smashing an egg in your hand and getting only a bit of it, stumbling around and wasting energy or wearing furs in the cold that look like they''ll fall off in a slight breeze isn't the way these guys survived to become you and me. Probably it's meant to show how different thay were from us, but I hope future attempts might use a little more imagination. Worth a look though.
