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.
