  • Walking With Beasts - The Complete Series [2001] Walking With Beasts - The Complete Series | DVD | (08/04/2002) from £5.99  |  Saving you £19.00 (76.00%)  |  RRP £24.99

    Walking With Beasts is an introduction to the animals (predominantly mammals) that roamed the earth from the extinction of the dinosaurs until the rise of early humans. The sequel to the BBC’s acclaimed and highly successful series Walking With Dinosaurs, Beasts also uses a combination of clever special effects and computer-generated imagery to create a realistic world as it may have appeared millions of years ago. As to be expected from any BBC nature programme, the images are visually stunning; the prehistoric animals look impressively lifelike, interacting seamlessly with each other and their environment to create an entire world that could have been photographed only yesterday. Best of all is Episode 2, "Whale Killer", which follows a female Basilosaurus, an enormous ancient predatory whale, as she travels through shallow seas and along coastlines--the underwater images could have just as easily originated in the BBC’s spectacular Blue Planet series. It’s unfortunate, therefore, that Walking With Beasts is let down by its script and the often dubious science therein. Episode 3, "The Land of Giants", begins with an anthropomorphic statement better suited to a Disney film than a scientific documentary, referring to the featured animals as "The good [a herbivore or plant-eating animal], the bad [a carnivore or flesh-eating animal] and the ugly [a giant warthog which is, admittedly, pretty ugly]." Still, Walking With Beasts has a host of little touches and flourishes that add to the feeling of realism (the animals knock over the cameras, pebbles hit the lens), which make this programme a success as a piece of pure entertainment and prehistoric escapism. A companion book and soundtrack CD is also available. --Ted Kord

    Walking with DinosaursIn 1999 the BBC's Walking with Dinosaurs TV series changed the way we saw dinosaurs forever. This revolutionary show takes viewers right into the dinosaurs' world showing them as if they were alive and filmed in the wild. Since then the series has been seen by millions of people around the world and has won three Emmy awards. It brings to life the mystery and excitement of the age when these reptiles roamed our planet. The makers of Walking with Dinosaurs returned to make two specials The Ballad of Big Al and Land of Giants and The Giant Claw to continue to delight fans of the original series. Special Features: Enhanced Picture-in-Picture Sequences The Making of Walking with Dinosaurs The Ballad of Big AlYears ago an amazing fossil was unearthed in Wyoming USA. Not only were the bones they found those of a dinosaur 'Big Al' but the skeleton of this creature was very nearly complete. The first programme follows his life – a 15-year story of a lone battle against formidable prey and voracious predators whilst the second programme traces the scientific evidence of Big Al. Special Features: Photo Gallery Storyboard Comparison Land of Giants and The Giant ClawIn Land of Giants we join the adventuring zoologist Nigel Marven as he visits the Argentinean landscape of 100 million years ago to attempt to see the biggest land predator bring down the biggest land prey but will he succeed?

  • Walking With Dinosaurs [1999] Walking With Dinosaurs | DVD | (15/05/2000) from £5.49  |  Saving you £19.50 (78.00%)  |  RRP £24.99

    Walking with Dinosaurs, which must have surprised even its makers by reaching the viewing figures usually reserved for royal weddings, was the undoubted television event of 1999. (The companion book and soundtrack album became bestsellers, too.) Extending the computer animation techniques developed for Jurassic Park (1993) these six 30-minute programmes, narrated by Kenneth Branagh, became the first blockbuster special-effects documentary. Here was natural history with a difference, recreating "the lost world" of the Cretaceous and Mesozoic with modern technology, the remarkable visuals enabling the programme-makers to show what life may have been like during the estimated 160 million years "when dinosaurs ruled the Earth". As well as the dinosaurs, the series investigates the plants, insects, climate and geography of the distant past, and considers the mystery of why the creatures became extinct so suddenly. There has been some argument over how much is scientific fact, and how much is entertaining speculation--after all, Life on Earth (1978) and The Living Planet (1984) had the advantage of living subjects to film--but for the moment this series must stand as the definitive visual chronicle of the life and times of the fascinating "terrible lizards". A year later the BBC followed this with the surprisingly sympathetic The Ballad of Big Al (about a youthful Allosaurus), before the equally ambitious, and equally enthralling Walking with Beasts (2001). On the DVD: Those interested in special effects techniques will appreciate the inclusion of a 50-minute "making of" documentary (which is also on the VHS). There's also an informative director's commentary, plus some behind-the-scenes picture sequences and additional graphics. The sound is vivid Dolby stereo and the picture is anamorphic 16:9 widescreen.--Gary S Dalkin
