from £6.99 | Saving you £2.05 (15.80%) | RRP
Vanished for 65 million years dinosaurs are making a comeback both in the lab and in the public imagination. Combining pop culture with hard science Dinosaurs: Inside And Out takes viewers on a fast-paced fun and enlightening tour of what we know about dinosaurs and what we're just finding out about how they lived. This series of four one-hour programs moves from palaeontologists working to discover fossils in the field to the reconstruction of dinosaurs and their habitats and even into the shopping mall to see how dinosaurs capture our imaginations today. Renaissance Of The Dinosaurs: Many early palaeontologists in their haste to assemble as many of the dinosaurs as possible made mistakes in reconstructing dinosaurs and their habitats. See how today's scientists consider that dinosaurs may have been a completely unique group of animals far more complex and intelligent than we had ever imagined. Land Of The Giants: Travel back to the teeming landscape of the badlands of North America during the age of the dinosaurs where sheer size was a herbivore's best defence against predators. Discover how dinosaurs used their horns thick skulls and stamping feet not only to scare off enemies but also to attract mates. The Killer Elite: Despite our modern views about dinosaurs some of these creatures have managed to maintain their monstrous reputation: the carnivores. Find out how fleet-footed raptors used their razor-like claws to gut luckless prey and why the legendary Tyrannosaurus Rex may not have been the feared attacker as was once thought. And Then There Were None: How could dinosaurs flourish for over 160 million years and then suddenly vanish? In the Yucatan Peninsula lies an intriguing clue: the shadowy remains of a huge meteorite crater. Could it be the smoking gun that extinction theorists have been looking for?
David Attenborough's Life Of Birds | DVD | (04/12/2000)
from £6.99 | Saving you £17.06 (56.90%) | RRP
Like the albatross glimpsed in the beginning of this 10-part series The Life of Birds quickly takes flight. Sir David Attenborough hosts this unprecedented and extraordinary global look at the magnificent and often curious winged species with which we share our planet. Like the best wildlife shows, The Life of Birds offers a fresh and accessible view of creatures we may take for granted (didn't Alfred Hitchcock warn us about that?). The focus of this series is not on the different bird species, but on bird behaviour. Remarkable and awe-inspiring footage preserves the wide range of tools and techniques with which birds fly, hunt for food, attract a mate, hatch their chicks and defend themselves against predators. Attenborough pops up in the most remote, most exotic locales, with occasional comic effect: at one point, night-vision cameras capture the rare sight of the nocturnal kiwi as it forages for food on a New Zealand beach; the camera pans to reveal scant paces away our guide shining a flashlight on the nonplussed bird. --Donald Liebenson
