Walking with Dinosaurs

Show Summary

This six-part series, developed by Framestore Ltd. and the BBC, follows the life of Earth's greatest life forms through their reign over the Mesozoic world, from their humble beginning in the late Triassic, to their fall in the Cretaceous. Along the way, we are also witnessed to their reptilian cousins that ruled the seas and air during this fantastic time in Earth's history. Though one must keep in mind that the stories are mere speculation, the filmmakers enlisted the aide of scientists to provide them with as many facts as possible for this series. Walking with Dinosaurs scored the highest ratings for a cable series ever when it aired on the Discovery Channel. The series won an Annie, two BAFTAs, a Broadcasting Press Guild award, three Emmys Awards for Outstanding Animated Program (For Programming More Than One Hour), Outstanding Sound Editing in Non-Fiction Program & Outstanding Special Visual Effects for a Miniseries, Movie or a Special (out of six nominations), the Peabody Award, three Royal Television Society awards, a TV Quick Award, a Television and Radio Industries Club Award, and a Young Artist Award. Since this series aired, it has spawned several follow-up series, including The Ballad of Big Al, Walking with Beasts, Walking with Cavemen, and at least three specials hosted by naturalist Nigel Marven.

    It was great story line, visual effects and sound editing.

    This my friend is what you call a good show! It focuses on the past life of dinosuars and their times. It's very informative and my kids still love it! It will keep your eyes glued to the screen! Your eyes could just run into the tv. My favorite episode was the one under the sea. The dinos were all so cool! I wish they brought it back. Everything about this show is great! Lot's of action mixed in with the learning. Very amusing. I went to go pick the DVD up one day. These dinpsuars are not forgetful. What a great show!moreless
  • Awesome! I love this show. Bring it back!

    I loved this show and think that they should bring it back, because in my opinion there is a lot more that they could talk about concerning dinosuars.

    I am a little disappointed that some of the predators were left out, for example the raptors were only mentioned in one episode! Whereas T-Rex had a whole episode based around it and the cretacious period.

    The jurassic period, however I believe was not talked about enough.

    I really enjoyed the episode on cruel seas though and would love to see a second series come back with more episodes so crammed with action, while also being informative.moreless

    Walking with Dinosaurs is a groundbreaking acheivment for TV and special effects.Who would of thought that dinosaurs could be created with such realism,then get slapped on our screens?

    But it's not just the CGI that's fantastic.The way it's narrated seems that it's an actuall nature documentary.You feal that the dinosaurs are real.

    Walking with Dinosaurs is a facinating and sometimes,eye-boggling mockumentary.You see what life was lke during the time when dinosaurs ruled the earth.moreless

    Great grafics...Now I know they wont bring it back but it still is good.Not bad for something about learning.I normally watch things that rot my brain till no more but I still like to flip to this if it is on.Cause I really like all the animal violence and stuff.And I like dinos and all.Science teachers love this stuff.And ever scince I want to be a paleotologist,I eat this stuff up.*In case some people dont know what it is.It is someone who studies dinos and digs them up.I would prefere to stay in a nice air conditioned test lab but,hey,beggers cant be choosers.*moreless
