Trivia

As in Walking With Dinosaurs and Walking With Beasts, some CGI models were reused for multiple genera, in order to reduce costs. For instance, the labyrhintodont amphibian in the Late Permian segment is a recolored version of the Hynerpeton from the Late Devonian segment. The therocephalian in the Early Triassic segment is a reuse of the cynodont from "New Blood", the first episode of Walking With Dinosaurs. Further, the dragonflies attacked by the Euparkeria in that same segment are the same CG model as Meganeura from the Carboniferous segment. See more »

Alternate Versions

There are two widely available variations of the show's original British version:
  • One that has all three episodes being separate. This version has previews and recaps at the beginning and end of each episode. Also, at the very end there is a never-before-seen shot of an Allosaurus walking on a Jurassic plain.
  • The other version combines the three episodes into a one-and-a-half hour long movie, with the episodes flowing together. This one lacks the new shot of the Allosaurus. It begins with primordial Earth being shown from afar, whereas the other version lacks this shot and starts out with a closer view. It also has an extended ending, with more stock footage taken from Walking with Dinosaurs as the narrator talks about the mammals' ancestors. The other version lacks this scene.

Why did they make this differant from the other two shows?
12 October 2020 | by dinobroofSee all my reviews

My only problem I have with this show is that they didn't make six 40minute episodes in differant settings like they did with WwDinos and WwBeasts. Its just weird to me.
