Ever since catching the mini documentary series on the BBC in 1999 I have been secretly wanting to own this little piece of television history. Yes, I may be twenty something, but I am still a kid when it comes to dinosaurs.
I finally got it today when I found it in a WHSmith sale 'box'. £7.99. Amazon UK sells the DVD for £22.49. 8 quid is a bargain!
By using CGI technique first seen on Jurassic Park, the BBC has developed six 30-minute programmes ranging from the time when dinosaurs were relatively new to our tiny planet and its evolution and then to its sudden demise some 65 million years ago.
It was the first blockbuster documentary series in the UK. The first disc comes with all six episodes with picture in picture sequences (DVD angle-2). The second disc contains the making of feature which contains funny interludes.
